A truck for the boys

Posted on: July 12, 2012

Boys Love Trucks

I’ve learned that when in doubt as what to do next on a hat for a girl, add a flower.  It isn’t always quite so clear as to what a “boy” hat should look like, especially if you are using something other than a traditional blue yarn.  So I was delighted when I found a freight truck button that I could add to this fun, varigated orange and cream hat.  It reminds me of the matchbox cars and trucks that many little boys always have in hand.

About Summer

I have been knitting, crocheting, sewing and embroidering since childhood. It is great fun to combine many of these activities in handcrafting hats and other apparel for wee ones. I'm delighted that you have found my site and hope you enjoy browsing through my latest creations.

Most of the hats are made with 100% cotton. Prices range from $25 to $35 depending on time required in making that design. I also custom design hats and other apparel for special occasions or to match the colors of your favorite team. Just let me know what you have in mind!
