I have been wanting to make either a hat or an ami of Gir for a long time, and luckily I got a chance to make not just one, but two Gir hats this week. The coolest part about it? I got to make a robot and a dog version of Gir! I decided I would stuff the eyes on both, which I normally don't do, but it seemed necessary for these two just for authenticity.
Here is another look at the Doggie Gir Hat, modeled by my daughter, Violet. She isn't smiling like I would have liked her to, but she is three, what can I really expect. Besides, I kind of like the crazy look for this hat. I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn for this hat, and felt for the nose and tongue. The ears were kind of a pain because I couldn't seem to get the right angle for them, but I think I eventually got it right.
And here is another look at the Robot Gir Hat. This one being modeled by my younger sister Maggie. I think the robot one looks way cuter when worn, it just didn't really photograph well sitting by itself. I also used Red Heart Super Saver for this hat, and only used felt for the tongue. I hope you guys enjoy. There should be a lot more to come in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out!
