Rules of engagement: Made with textiles of your choosing
the article can be anything from a stuffed animal to
an evening purse, crocheted hat or pair of yoga pants. Just gotta be
fun. Remember the clue. :-)
So I prettied up the hat that was I was working on a pattern for and made a second "grandpa" style hat (modified a pattern) and entered them as "Nana & PopPop baby hats"
I also included this story: "I was recently helping my mom clean out some boxes left from my grandparent's estate. I came across boxes upon boxes of pictures of them from the 40's and 50's decked out the the extreme! They always looked like they were having a fun so I created the "Nana" hat pattern and then modified a pattern for the "PopPop" hat from an adult pattern I have. After the contest ends, I will be listing these for sale in my etsy shop."
Now, most of you know that my grandparents aren't/weren't "Nana & PopPop" but I thought it sounded more catchy. I will, of course, need to photograph the hats again, perhaps on an actual baby... now where to find a baby who won't mind being photographed for commercial purposes and doesn't charge a lot...
