Tropical baby bird hat

Crochet tropical baby bird hat

This little tropical baby bird hat has flown off to America!

I was contacted by a lady who wanted a very particular set of colours for a baby bird hat – orange, yellow and pink, with green leaves for her daughter-in-law’s soon to arrive new baby for a newborn photo shoot.

I’ve never tried this colour combination before but I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s a fabulous combination of tangerine, sunshine yellow with baby pink splashes in the flowers in a super dinky newborn size.

As strange as it sounds it is actually harder to make very small hats than it is to make bigger ones. I’m not really sure why, it just seems that way; you have to shrink everything right down and get the scale right. Anyway, this one came out perfectly!

Baby bird hats are made to order rather than being a ‘stock’ item so they can be made in any colour combination you like.  I am inspired to try more bright colours after creating this one. It’s so much fun!

Tropical baby bird hats and baby bird hats in any colour or combination of colours you choose are available to order in the Ruby & Custard shop for £24 including free UK postage & packing.

In the meantime I have lots of ideas for new pattens and I’m really enjoying getting creative and trying new things.  My hook is flying!

I hope you are all well,
