Stay Tuned For Giveaway

This is a big teaser. By the end of the month I am going to set up a give way for my bonnets. I actually started selling them and set up a little Facebook page. I started out adding borders onto pre made bonnets but would get so annoyed at the asymmetry that I came up with my own pattern. My learning curve has been steep. I never picked up a crochet needle before September but my various injuries mean I have way too much time on my hands. I have always been against learning how to sew but made an exception for pony bonnet ears. Making the full bonnet increased my cost a bit but the difference in quality is worth it. I have more color options and can customize fit. The yarn I found is much better than what you find in the average store bought bonnet. I took the month of January off from new orders to catch up on my local orders and plan give a way on my blog for you guys and one over on my FB page.

Here is my business page if you have anyone in need of pony hats:

The top royal bonnet is one of my first. This color combo is striking in person. The royal I am using now is brighter so the colors pop even more. 

Between the royal and this one you can see where I started making more of the bonnet so everthing was neat and tidy. 

The brown ended up with pretty pink and turquoise crystals. I hope the owner sends me photos!!

This is when I started make the bonnets from top to bottom. It is for my friend who loves turquoise and bling. 

 I wish the black photographed better. I love this yarn. It is polished so the colors are really deep. I don't think they will fade either like many of the affordable bonnets do. Sometimes I wish I wasn't selling them and could keep all the bonnets for Dickie. 

This is for my friend's gelding. I wish the burgundy didn't look so bright. It the same color as the black and silver one above. I need to make Dickie one because he has a matching pad.
