Lavender Hat Update

This hat is so gosh darned cute. I'm posting the booties too just so you can see what they look like together. Now, I will finish the dress and post the whole ensemble.

Viewed from the front.

Little Ellie Grace Booties.
View from the right side of the hat.

The hat was supposed to have a flower for the decoration. But, Ellie Grace's momma has chosen butterflies for her room . . . her  marriage to my nephew is her second, and she sees it as a rebirth to her life . . . and Ellie Grace is the result of her rebirth.

I know she will love the butterfly . . . I hope you can see that it is 3-dimensional.

Oh, there was supposed to be a ribbon woven through the lighter lavender round so the hat can be tightened if necessary. I think I will use a deep lavender for this. I am sure I can't match either color I have used and something darker would go with it. Plus, the buttons on the dress are a dark lavender.
