Cool! I like yours better, does it really take a 27 inch square of linen?
that's my best guess-ment from where heather's site shows her's layed out on
18 inch tiles. difference I can see is yours is made with a wide folded over
(or interfaced) area along one edge and heather's switches to a narrower
width towards the ends. also in your pictures it looks like you brought the
2 extra tails/wings up to the front and pinned them instead of them hanging
down in back, is that so or just what I am seeing?
who got her Mongol hat barely done for Estrella and ended up with a free
coif to wear under it. it definitely helped with the itchy head syndrome.
Heck the kiddos even wore the polar fleece coifs a friend made them. Now I
Must make more hats. Actually must finish DH's hat first, oy sewing fur cuff
onto the hat.
