The Jingle Bell Walk is an arthritis money raising event in December in Portland. Team Annie members Annie, Drew, Nan and MaryBeth wore red and white earflap hats minus Gracie, Gretta and Grandma Judy. I made these hats the month before on an Hawaiian family vacation. I had many comments from curious folks around the pool.

One section of our Saturday Market booth showing some hats and microwave potato bags. My darling friend of 50 years showed up one day.

Spring is here and so is Saturday Market. Earflap hats sell until the weather warms but sales slow down as the thermometer goes up.
Carmen taught me how to make purses. It is quick, easy and uses up all the leftovers. It is fun because of the creativity needed in combining colors and textures.
These sample photos show some ideas using fun fur for accents.
I used the blue loom to make purses 5-6 inches long and attached an i-cord handle. These do not have a clasp for closing. That should be easy to do on some others.

These hats are modified from a pattern by "cputzier". The blue one went to my friend Judy in Astoria. I am surprised how fitting they look on adults and children alike. It is fun to watch people try on these hats because they immediately become lively, perky and humorous in actions.
