Another of the 111 in 2011 Becomes Senator Webb's Hat

I believe this is my 16th (or maybe 17th) item of my 111 in 2011 made from stash. It's the Seaman's Cap I knitted for Senator Webb and got off the needles tonight. I slipped it on Karen's head and set her down on the floor (the cream-colored door is the best backdrop up here in the den for taking decent photos). The Tonk came over to investigate...

and a split second after that shot, he slapped Karen on the nose! I don't think he was being hurtful, he just couldn't figure out what to make of a woman's head down on the floor...

(but he likes this hat, I can tell you that, so it's going right in a plastic bag till I can mail it off to Senator Webb's office)
I'm trying to figure out if I can count my sister's bathroom curtains in my 111 things. It's not MY stash I made them from, it's hers. She bought a shower curtain she liked (two actually, and the one is hanging in her shower, of course), but she finally decided that she wanted cafe curtains out of the other one. So I've sliced it to make a valence and hemmed that, then split the lower section (don't you know this curtain had a top and middle-to-bottom border print?) in half vertically, hemmed the sides, and then the new "top" and made a rod pocket. Hopefully she'll be happy with the results. I'm off to make the tie-backs out of the remaining fabric and we'll see how things look this weekend.

Maybe it's fair to count it? What do you think? Hmm...I used my stash of thread, does that count?

The hat looks great - and that color would be very nice on Tonk, you have to admit.

And I believe that if you didn't buy any thread for that project, you should at least be able to count it for a half.

That's a great Tonk story! I think you should count the curtain; it's the effort that counts! You really should probably count all the fabric items too, even if most aren't stash... you are such a productive creator!

I think you can count it - especially since I can't imagine making two things per week from stash!! I'm glad you can count sewing, and this one should go on the list :)

Love the hat! And you know that if the Tonk loves it, it's got to be good.

Stash is stash. Count it.
