|my mom's kitchen...usually spotless...the mess is my fault ~ dinner was on us last night as a thank you & I was jumping back & forth between cooking & sewing|
Special request from Jason....12th Man Beer Can hats for the boys' roadtrip to Arizona (they are Superbowl bound!!!). So highbrow, cough cough, but every fan needs one, right? We spent the weekend with my mom and these hats were a true group effort ~ I cut the cans into pieces and did the seaming, Jason punched all the holes in the aluminum, my mom used her mad crochet skills, and Dozer supervised!
They were a blast to make ~ sorry I can't share a recipe but we fudged these caps from beginning to end ~ they're freeform and custom fit. There are tons of patterns out there, though...we just couldn't find one that suited our vision. I think they turned out fantastic. Jason thinks they are perfect, so that's all that matters anyway.
Note to self - when working against a deadline, make sure to allow time for the beer to be imbibed. Sadly, this surprisingly tasty beer went down the drain except for a few small glasses. Boo. Hoo.
