Let them have Hats!

Today has been all about hats around these parts. You will laugh, but tomorrow is going to be all about fish… just wait and see, its definitely a first.

One of our brand new THREADS patterns is for matching mommy & girl sun hats. But let's be honest, I am certainly not going to put my head on the cover of a pattern if I can at all avoid it. So today for 3 hours we shot the model de jour! Since the boys wouldn't be caught dead in a sun hat, that only left one person ready and willing.
And although I do certainly love the results, photo shoots with the munchkin are always surprisingly fun and exhausting at the same time. Thank you to everyone involved for their patience & creativity!

Here are a few of the pics…. several of these are on the pattern cover. The rest will go to the in laws! 






This last one is easily my favorite. In order to distract her when she was getting bored, we asked her how many toes she had on her feet and so of course she promptly started to count them on her fingers! Here she is up to toe number #2 I think. Sweet moments in the midst of work, deadlines & insanity.

p.s. glimpses of the new fabric in pic #4…

Talk to you soon.

    What perfect pictures…and your daughter is precious! Love the hat as well…I’m definitely going to have to make that too!

  14. Joanna | 23rd Sep 09

    I know! Someone suggested that I photoshop the skinned knee out and I
    thought…. No way! That¹s who she is.

    Happy Sewing,


  15. Joanna | 23rd Sep 09

    No, its a result of her always trying to beat everyone everywhere… And
    usually not succeeding! The fate of the 3rd child I guess.
