My awesome pattern testers made some lovely versions of their Monster Wear hat & mittens that I’m very happy to be sharing with you today. Many thanks to them for their help!
Vasiliki of Delightfully Peculiar made a beautiful faux fur version. She said that the fur she used wasn’t great quality (although it was a stashbuster) and noted that the quality of fur you use is noticeable (as I mention in the post on choosing fabric for Monster Wear), so she wants to use a nicer fur next time. The lining was cut from an old t-shirt making it soft and cozy against her head.
I was floored by the gorgeous combination of fur, lace, and animal print in Kathleen’s first hat. Not something I would have come up with myself but I adore it! She also made a fun set using Monsters Inc. print fabric for the ears and hat lining, perfect for making this hat even more appealing to kids.
Lara of Create for Life made a version that is fun for the whole family! She cut the hat out of old clothes that she had been wanting to recycle, making it cheap and eco-friendly. The lining and ear contrasts are wool making the hat quite warm.
Cheryl of Orange is a Neutral used fleece and flannel which should help keep her head warm through her Canadian winters. I hadn’t considered folding the brim back, but I like how it looks on her version.
Sewcial Warrior made an animal-print fleece version that matches an infinity scarf she had made previously. I think the combination looks downright elegant! And I understand that both her kids are wanting a version of their own.
An additional thanks to my testers that didn’t want to be included in the round-up post – you know who you are and I appreciate your help too! I love my pattern testers and welcome anyone to pattern test for me, so if you’re into pattern testing, sign up to be added to the list for future patterns!
