Plushie Fashion Week 2017: The Cat Hat Collection

You know me have a best friend who makes all me clothes right? She also like to make scarfs and hats and Cookie pins for me friends on Instagram. You can read more about that in this months’ edition of Pet’s Mews - me friends totally surprised us with that article! Well, in September me very good and sweet friend Tipsy Cat Bose - editor in chief at Pet’s Mews – decided it was time to host the first annual #plushiefashionweek2017. Ofcourse Berry just had to enter. We entered #plushiefashionweekAW17 with a special Autumn/Winter collection inspired by… the island Texel. (pictures by Berry de Nijs)

You have seen me blog about our Summer Vacation on the island Texel last Friday right? Me told you about the little photoshoot we did at the beach with the cute little hats and scarfs. Well… that was for Plushie Fashion Week 2017! Berry had brought this little balls of cotton yarn with her on vacation and looking at the island, feeling the wind in her hair and me in me fur, smelling the salty ocean wind… she just knew what to make. The colours were perfect. And cotton is nice to wear when you go to the beach in Autumn or Winter. So… the idea for the collection was there… time to knit!

Berry decided to make Cat Hats. They are called like that, because when you wear the rectangular shaped hats, little cat ears will appear in the corners. Cute huh. She started with the Cat Hat for Frights, who really loved the pearly tones of the colours. After that she made a Cat Hat for Foxy Toffee, Bassie, Coral, little Cloudy and little Bamboo. Bassie and Frights both got tiny scarfs matching their hats. The cotton gave the collection a little fishermen’s net look. Also we gave the little hats names to match the colours. Cool huh. In the catalogue below you can find the names of all the hats. Me loved it. Me wished me had a hat head…

O yes… normally every piece of Fashion made by Berry that is no sweater is decorated with a crochet cookie… but due to lack of time and beige cotton yarn there are no cookies (yet) on these hats and scarfs…
