I can’t believe it is time for the boutique already!

26 Jan

I have been so busy preparing for the boutique on Friday, I’ve completely forgotten to blog about my progress.  I have made a TON of progress and am proud to say that I have competed about 30 kaps and 10 headbands.  I’m really excited for the many new styles and ideas.

Here are some of the headbands I created.  I really like the red, white, and blue one.  Perfect for this 4th of July festivities this summer.  I can’t wait to see some of my friends little girls sporting it. 

I made a bunch of new kaps as well.  This is just a small sampling of them.

This brown hat’s buttons are vintage.  They came from a coat my mom had in high school. 

I’m not a big pink, flower, lovey, dovey kind of gal.  So, this black and hot pink valentines beanie is right up my alley.  In my mind hot pink with black says ‘punk rock’, but the heart makes it just the right amount of festive.

I love the flower on this blue kap because it makes me think of Hawaii.  I wish I were in Hawaii now.  I mean seriously though, who doesn’t wish they were perpetually in Hawaii?

This grey kap is probably one of my all-time favorites.  I love the color because grey goes with everything.  I love the 3 mis-matched vintage buttons.  But, most of all, what you can’t get from this photo is how unbelievable soft this kap is.  It is like wearing a brand-new comfy sock on your head…..but not so weird and much more fashionable. 

 These 2 kaps feature more of the hibiscus-style flowers that I’m in love with right now.

This is a little girls kap that I made especially for the valentines theme of the boutique.

This red kap is one I call “The Perfect Fit”.  It fits snugly on my noggin.  I totally  love it and would consider keeping it for myself if I didn’t already have so many hats.

Last but certainly not least is this adorable little kap I made with some extra yarn from some adult styles.  This kap is perfect for newborn pictures of a little boy.  I find it hard to believe that  Keegan’s head would have ever fit into something that small, but I know it would have.

 

I’m both excited and nervous for the boutique.  I can’t wait to get some more feedback on all my hard work.  I just hope some other people love these things as much as I do.

A Happy ‘Customer’

5 Jan

This adorable little man is Landon.  He is a happy KeegansKaps customer.  I use the term customer very loosely since I made a hat for the little guy last year as a gift.  Landon is a very good friend of mine’s little boy.  He is 8 months older than Keegan and they have fun playing together whenever they get the chance.  On this outing Landon and his doggies were playing in the snow.  The earflaps seem to be doing a good job keeping him warm.
