We've learned quite a heckuva lot actually! I attempted a hat with no pattern, just an idea in my head and a will to live. After a few nights of work, no idea how many hours exactly, this is what I came up with. I made it to my daughter's size, because I knew there was no way it was going to be perfect and therefore unsellable. And I was right, it has definite flaws. But she looks like a cutey patooty in it, so I'm pleased. Especially since I learned so much doing it and will be able to make a great one next time. :) Plus my son wants one now too...of course!
We spent the weekend preparing our house for potential buyers to see it next weekend. Still a lot more to do this week but if they decide to buy it'll save us a lot of work in the long run. Keeping our fingers crossed the wifey likes it! The husband has already seen it and is ready to buy, but you know how it is!
Here's some fun pictures of my kids displaying their inner nerds:
