I meant to post a picture of this a while ago but forgot. This was my first Alchemy request on Etsy from a lovely woman in Chicago. This was also my first attempt at recreating a sports team logo. I had major concerns about getting the Chicago Bears logo on model but I think it turned out pretty well. It's not perfect but I think that's part of the charm of hand-made.
This hockey helmet hat was a commission from a friend in Prague for his toddler son. Again, I had my concerns about getting the Habs logo on model but I think it worked okay. Posting this on Facebook triggered three more hockey helmet hat orders. I think the Viking Hat has some competition now.
Between the sports related head gear and the viking hats I made this:
This was another commission from my friend Karen (brown bear hat). Her original request was for just a Gnome Hat that she can wear on Halloween, and if I had time, maybe throw in a moustache. I really wanted to throw in a beard. So I devised a cowl/neckwarmer that she can pull up on her face for a moustache-beard combo or she can wear it under a coat with the moustache tucked in for a cozy neckwarmer. I think I'll put this up in my Etsy shop after Christmas. I bet it would look cool with the Viking hat too.
