Things To Make & Do - Paris in Spring Chapeau

Bonjour mes amis!

Aimez-vous mon chapeau?
(Do you like my hat?) 
The 'Paris in Spring' Chapeau, You've got to love a bit of Leopard print! C'est Tres Chic!

Oui ou Non?

Okay, Okay that's where my French vocab ends, so why has this crazy woman gone all French on you?

Well, the lovely Miss Katie was very kind to ask me to do a guest post for her while she is away enjoying the sights of Paris. I was delighted and very flattered, so I jumped at the opportunity & have created a little Parisian influenced chapeau for her readers with the aid of the above 1950's Stitchcraft of course!

But I wouldn't want you, my faithful readers, to feel left out, so if your answer was Oui! to the above question, then why not hop on over to Katie's blog The Little Red Squirrel where you will find a free pdf pattern and my tutorial on how to make your very own 'Paris in Spring Chapeau', it's all very simple I promise and I think it is rather snazzy, even if I do say so myself:)
