Hat number 3 has been completed (again) for its happy recipient. This one is a 'stealth panache'... in the sense that stealth means a panache 9 inches across....

The original version was made up a couple of days ago, but having expressed my doubts about its size throughout, when it was completed, ormsweird agreed, "Yep, it is too big, isn't it." So. One rapid bit of hat butchery later, I had the bits available again, and reduced it by two inches, resulting in one new hat. You can see it modelled by our Moose, as well as pictures of Eve modelling hat number 2.

hat no 3 is a good side for the Moose, if that's what you're after ;-) Hat no 2 modelled by owner no 2 is absolutely adorable!! She should totally get baby lanskenect!

Well, the hat isn't for the Moose, but you'll need to persuade ormsweird to model. I can't manage it.

I'm told that baby garb isn't happening before age 1.

tell her to do what I did: about a week before the next event, make a sleeveless surcote to go over a solid-coloured onsie :-) Or she could do what Tembu and Helen did, and make a "caftan" type thing (viking or mongolian, as theirs was) that has a tie closure. Their son's lasted from age 6 months to 18 or maybe 2 years in age...

Not sure how much of Raglan she's actually going to make it to to be honest, outdoor events and babies are very weather dependant.

heh, tell me about it! Poor Emily and I had to shelter inside at the last Craigmillar event. I really need to get going on her polar-fleace-lined hood!

I think Drachenwald needs a Child/baby garb exchange program!
