Every spring our Ladies Bible Study has a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party after one of the Bible Studies. Each lady is asked to create a silly hat to wear to the tea party. In the past I have let my older daughter create a hat for me. I have also made a hat with lots of crocheted flowers on it. This year I had the idea to make a hat shaped like a teapot. I knew, however, I would not have the time to create the pattern myself. I went in search of a pattern.
I could not find any patterns for a hat shaped like a teapot, but I did find a beautiful crochet pattern for a teapot toy on Etsy at KTB Designs. I am sure she thought it was strange when I asked the diameter of the bottom of the teapot before I purchased the pattern.
I ended up not crocheting the bottom of the teapot and then later adding the brim to it. It actually fits my kids better than me, but that is probably good since they both want to play with it.
