Pattern Intimidation!

Is it just me or do you all have one of those patterns that you find intimidating??
I bought this cute little Izzy and Ivy pattern sometime ago.....Isn't that hat just adorable?

Anyway, since I wasn't doing anything with it I gave it to my friend Paula who wasn't the big scaredy-cat that I was..... this is what she came up with (and I think this is only a sample of the ones she has made):
Aren't they gorgeous?? I can just see Paula's Miss 4 looking lovely in these....... So now, as you could imagine... I think I may have to get over my intimidation and acutally make one myself!

I'd love to hear what crafty thing you find intimidating!

Until next time........


  1. I can imagine you'd find that intimidating- I've made lots of things but never a hat! Unless you count a knitted one that looked ridiculous on me!!!!

  2. wow Paula did a gorgeous job on the hats......maybe you should go make one with her so she can show you...........Paula must be a pro now......

  3. Now that surprises me, that you would be intimidated by anything Tracy! Can't wait to see your creations!

  4. They do look a bit fiddly, but very cute. I'm sure you could handle it though! lol
    Anything with ruffles(like these hats) scares me - along with anything requiring a zip!
    Good luck if you give the hats a go.


Thanks so much for your comments...... It's nice to know i'm not just talking to myself!
