Finally finished that letter.  It’s a real letter to a friend!  Huzzah!

This time, the letter is heading out to Spain, where I apparently send a lot of letters.  Who would have thought that I would end up knowing so many people in Spain?  This one is another letterfu letter.  I find that these letters are easier to write since I pre-fold the letter, which gives me a lot of smaller boxes on the paper to write small notes.  This…is kind of pathetic that I can’t even commit to a full page letter.  I mean, it’s one 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of paper.  I can’t write a one page letter?  Well, a bunch of small notes is something, right?  And it’s probably a bit easier for the recipient to read if they don’t read a full page of blatherings because I think I’m still suffering from a pretty bad case of ASD.

Pika-chuuuuuuuuuu!!

Here it is!  This was the project I was supposed to finish last week, but couldn’t get it together to do so.

This was a prize for one of the jr. high girls who managed to finish reading the Gospels in the New Testament.  I was originally going to make her a monster hat with teeth, as I am fond of those because it looks like the hat is eating your head.  But, she’s a big fan of Pikachu.  She’s probably Pikachu’s biggest fan.  It was more fitting to make her a Pikachu hat.

The Pikachu hat is a flannel-lined fleece hat.  The eyes, cheeks, and nose are appliqué.  The mouth is embroidered.  I did most of it free hand, so I don’t have a pattern for it.  If you’re interested, I can give you the dimensions I used…but that’s about all I have.  The hat is sized for an average teenage girl’s head according to this.

You can’t quite see it in the photo, but I managed to get the nose right where the hat comes to a point so the face looks a lot like how Pikachu is drawn.  I was quite proud of myself.

Maybe one of my next projects should be making a hat stand so I don’t have to prop up hats on my water bottle.
