I would like to say a huge thank you
To Megan for inviting me here today.
I’m Sue from SusanD1408 Crochet Addict
This is me with my son Little Red
Who is my inspiration!
I love designing Animal Themed items
I sell the finished product and the crochet patterns.
Today I would like to talk about the process of designing a hat.
It’s important to start with a good basic design
I start with my basic hat.
I then alter it
with earflaps, brims and other option.
I choose the right colour of hat for the animal.
This is the design for my dragon hat.
Then I start the process of designing each piece
I search for pictures on the internet of the animal I am making
And look at each feature I want adding to my hat.
The first thing I decided on was nostrils
Then the eyes
It’s important to get the colour of the eyes right
and the shape.
As each part is added to the hat you can see what needs adding.
In this case the eyes needed something more so an eyelid seemed the best option.
The eyebrows worked but it still wasn’t looking like a dragon
The ears made all the difference!
I still wanted more personality in this hat
So decided to add some brows & wings
Last but not least a dragon needs fire
As you can see from each part the personality of the hat
can change vastly with each piece that is added.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the process
of my hat being created.
