I knew there was a reason I bought that waste canvas stuff ages ago. It was just sitting there, patiently waiting for the day when I realized what I needed it for. I'd never used waste fabric before, but I have done a bit of cross-stitch in the past. The instructions on using the waste cloth were clear and so I tested it out on my knitted swatch to see how it would look. Both my husband and eldest son agreed with me that it looked good, and so my cross-stitched stars came to be. Although my initial design had multiple stars stitched on the blue background, I decided to just stitch one star on each hat since the cross-stitching technique is rather time-consuming and I really wanted to get these hats finished before the Fourth of July. I'm pleased with the results and like the "lone star" look.

More hats are in the works! I have two new long-tailed elf hats in bright summer colors--that are going to be listed either tomorrow or the next day! And here are a couple sneak peeks of a newsboy set--I have plans to make more of these soon!
