*enchanted tree hat*

oooh! a light just went on in that tree.  that means there must be a gnome or pixie family living there!  i just knew this hat was enchanted.
Pull the brown tassel to turn the light *off*. 
Pull the green tassel to turn the light *on*.
The light switch is simply a long i-cord with a yellow bit woven through the tree trunk.  When you pull the i-cord, it slides to reveal a little light!  Presto, the elves are home!

  3. Jo says:

    You never disappoint !!! Just darling!

  4. Lovely design Tiny Owl! That icord lightswitch is very clever – I’m sure all the tree elves want icord switches for their own homes now. The hat is enchanting and would look equally great with a cluster of leaves instead of tassle. thank for another wonderful design. Sarah

  31. Lali says:

    This is imagination + knowledge at its best…crazy adorable !!!

  32. Fuego Azul says:

    This is ingenious & too awesome!!! It reminds me of the popular book “Gnomes” by Wil Huygen & Rien Poortivliet. It’s too warm where I live to wear hats, but I don’t care!! I must make this!!! Great job!!! 🙂

    p.s. (Do you think Ruby might be pregnant? I know it sounds silly, but my grandmother saved her cat from the pound. She started getting heavy & the vet said to put her on a diet. Next thing we know, her cat’s a momma!)

    p.p.s. Any violets in your garden? Or primroses? Fairies apparently love these two plants; & ingesting violet tea supposedly helps you see them too. 😉

  82. Frances says:

    This is pure magic!

  83. Carole Cole says:

    The hat is perfect, Stephanie. I thought that it would be lit up with some kind of little LED lights and was so happy to find that it was a simpler kind of light. I wish we could incude photos for you, because my cat is a solid black Ruby who lies on her back when totally blissed and holds her front paws up against her chest like a kangaroo. Then we call her Kangaruby. It took 5 years to name her (she’s 10), because I thought she hated me – tricked me into taking her home from the shelter – and then turned her back on me. She knew I’d feed her anyway. When she finally got me to understand that she didn’t hate me, she just hated other cats, she banished all other cats and I complied. I named her Ruby Tuesday and it’s been all lovey dovey, all the time, every since. I think when they expose their bellies and relax in our company it’s because they are totally trusting us.

  84. Ann Johnson says:

    Sparkle fairy dust!! Hope I get to make one of your magical patters 🙂
