Contemplating and still making patterns... Giveaway too!

Please ignore my face. I wasn't wearing makeup or anything and my hair is in an aweful ponytail (underneath the hat).

So that is my newest pattern/addition that I made to my hat family. Her name is Kira and she is a sweet bunny with a great personality. I think I will make another bunny with ears that are wider because they just seem too thin. Maybe longer too- I dont know. I thought about making a bunny with poseable ears as well but haven't quite worked out the mechanics of it yet. Somehow adding wire into the ears that would stand up straight until bent... hmmm. I will have to think on that of course. Her lip(s) are a little funky in that they are lopsided because I was in a hurry to make her but each individual purchase will come with a made to order hat so that they will never actually recieve the hat in the pic. The hat in the pic will always be mine! Mwahahahaha! (That was an evil and selfish laugh in case you couldn't tell...)

I am excited despite the crooked lip(s) on Kira that my hats have been receiving such strong reviews on etsy but then again, everyone in the forums over there is so so so freaking nice that it is hard to sincerity in opinions sometimes. I just mean to say that, everyone says everything is nice unless it is a thread on critiqueing that specifically asks for the bad news.

Speaking of the forums, I started a threadkiller thread and contest!
I am hosting a threadkiller contest here and the prize will be any hat from my shop of a $30 value or less!

Rules are as follows:
1) To qualify for the threadkill, you must visit my shop and comment/post to let me know what item you like best from my shop.
2) This thread must reach 1,000 posts/comments before it can become a threadkill.
3) Your post must be the last post made for a full 24 hours within this thread to recieve the prize

So check that out and also the great promotional motivation going on in my shop right now. Buy a hat and receive 5 business cards from my shop. Hand them out with your name applied on the back. If anyone that you hand these out to decides to purchase a hat and uses your name in the "message to seller" box when purchasing, you will recieve a $2.00 credit towards your next hat purchase. The more you refer- the more you get for free. *Credit will expire after 6 months of time of issue.
