Men at Work

Yes, I haven’t had hardly any time lately to work on my crafting “to-do” list.  Which in a way is bad considering the things I want to make for the girls for Christmas.

James at work.  Photo taken by one of his fellow workers using James’ cell phone.  This picture is actually a pretty sane one he sent me.  Usually I get ones of him 200+ feet in the air on a steel beam.

James works construction as an electrician but has recently passed his welding test and is now one of the few electrician/welders on his job.  So to help him out, I’ve been making him welding hats.  Which are a must for all welders.  Well, he came home the other day and had said that a few guys had asked where he got his welding hat from and asked if I could make them some.  Hence the lack of posting, knitting, sewing, and thrifting (did I mention we are down to one car right now?).  But it’s fun making hats and I have been browsing around the net looking for hat patterns for the girls and I.  See how one thing snowballs into other things.

James hat outer.  I used Alexander Henry Baddana fabric.  I looooove Alexander Henry’s fabric.

The lining fabric.  Also by Alexander Henry.  I’m not to fond of the skulls but it is a nice hat if I do say so myself.

These are just a few of the other ones I’ve made.  I think total I’ve made about 20 of these welding hats.

Other links of interest:
*McHats Etsy shop – she sells not only handmade hats, but hat patterns as well (and in kids sizes YAY!)
*Piper and Paisley Etsy shop – no hat patterns for sale, but they are beautiful!
*Cute Hat Pattern – No directions, but it seems pretty easy to figure out.
*Scoodie – Awesome for kids so you don’t have to keep track of a hat plus a scarf.
