I have been so thrilled at the positive response to my Space Princess Hairdo Hat! Not only has it made the feature rounds on many of my favorite craft blogs, but it's now getting featured all over international, gaming & Star Wars fan blogs too, which is a real honor. What started as just a little fun hat idea for my baby girl is now keeping me busy with making custom Space Princess Hats on Etsy so more babies can rock the look for themselves. So a huge thank you to everyone who has commented, featured or purchased my hat. You make a crafter feel proud!
Many people have also asked if I could do a tutorial on making them, so after much work, the Space Princess Hairdo Hat PDF Pattern is now available in my Etsy shop, for those who want to make their own. Detailed, full color pictures & instructions on how to make it in several baby sizes. Fun for everyday wear, Halloween or as the ideal winter hat (those buns double as awesome, built-in ear muffs!).
I know a lot of people were hoping I'd put up a how-to here on the blog so I did want to explain why it's not. Like many of your own blogs, mine is a labor of love. What started as a place to record my random crafting experiences has become a much bigger & busier thing. I'm so glad it is and want to give as many free how-to's as I can, but since it's just me (a homeschooling mommy of 3) doing all the writing, designing, crafting & photographing, it requires a lot of unpaid time. And that's not something I've got a lot of these days. So sometimes adding in extra work isn't realistic for me. I hope no one is disappointed and I don't want to seem like a meanie, soooooo:
