So May is just a week away and we are all familiar with the term “April Showers, May Flowers”. Living in the South I have had the blessing of seeing so many pretty flowers bloom already and have been inspired to recreate some of these flowers. I am making some adorable cloche hats and headbands for my grand daughter and niece. It has been so much fun looking for flowers to duplicate. I can’t wait to see how many different types I will make in May. I found this cloche hat pattern at TheWhoot.com.au via Red Haired Amazona. The ladies here have worked really hard to translate the Russian Lady’s lovely pattern. I am thrilled with the way this turned out and am now making some in other colors and some headbands that I can embellish with May flowers. I encourage everyone to embrace springtime and explore the flowers. The colors and choices are endless. Enjoy! The lovely headbands can be found on Ravelry.com by Kinga Erdem.
