One of Paige's friends has a late December birthday. They're always hard, especially because money is usually tight right around that time. She was having an "Eclipse" themed party (Team Jacob, of course) and I proposed that we make her a hat like one Bella wore in the movie. It's this one, from the camping scene:
I found a crochet pattern online here and whipped it up in under 2 hours. It came out pretty good, I think. Here is Paige modeling it:
The ribbed brim should have been a little longer, but I was adjusting the size as I went for a child's head, so couldn't go as far down. Paige said the BDay girl liked it, wore it while they all watched the movie, and then even did a "Hat Dance" during that scene. When we wrapped it up, we included a print from the movie so she understood what she was getting.
Score for handmade gifts! Enjoy!
