Wingin' it

With any type of crafting that I do, I really like to just 'wing it' and have a go. Things don't always go to plan, and the end result is not always what I was visualising in my head.

Case in point above: This is a pressie for a sweet little girl who likes to do some baking with her mum. I was trying to make a chefs hat like the one that I made earlier, but once I'd gathered the piece of fabric for the top of the hat, I realised that it was far too small for a chefs hat.
So now it's a bakers hat!

I found a really small teatowel from the stash to transform into an apron - it nearly reaches her ankles at the moment.... but at least her clothes will stay clean.

So that's what I call 'Wingin' it 101'

As a thankyou, I received some beautiful creations - this one is a scary monster

Then this one is a footprint, and an alien....

....and this one is me! I even have fingernails and a bellybutton

I think crafting and "winging" go hand-in-hand. Nice work on the hat.

Great gift for the mini-chef! Sometimes with new patterns you just have to wing it and see how it turns out.

AH - you beat me to blogging the lovely apron and hat. They're both well worn and covered in muck... so I'll have to wash before photographing.

The wee girl was looking at your post and when she got to her "scary monster toy" she frowned and said "I don't like that one very much"...!! Nice of her to give it to you, huh?

Wingin' it just suits you down to the ground. Especially since you always land on your feet - I'd take that baker's hat any day...
