Creative blocking

image

About a week ago I finished a little hat, bonnet style, and I blocked it flat before sewing it together. While sewing it together though, I realized the back wasn’t going to be flat enough so I had to get creative. What would be big enough to make the back of the hat flat without ruining the rest of the hat? A cylinder shaped drainer came to my rescue, I simply threaded the hat over the drainer and voilĂ ! I had a perfect shape to form my little boonet. Now we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed that the hat actually fits the baby.
