Adventures in Nursing Part 2-AKA Scrub Hat

I have no idea how I get myself into these adventures but I do. I mean I am not a nurse, I do not play one one TV so why am I having nursing adventures? Actually I do know how this one happened. People have started to ask if I can make specific items they are looking for. Pretty much my answer is always if I can find a pattern or make a pattern then yes I can make it. Well someone asked if I could make an OR cap for her. She works at Children's Hospital and basically they can have any pattern they want. When she asked if I could make one I had no idea what she was talking about so she drew me a picture. OK yeah that helped but I was able to come up with a workable pattern and the ties are adjustable so that will make life easier for her. Now I since the hubby is delivering it I ope it is what she wanted if not no big deal because I know it looks a lot like what they call a Chemo cap so I am sure I will be able to use it at a show. Anyway this is what I came up with.

It actually looked pretty cool to me but what do I know! All I know is they are OR caps or hats, scrub hats or chemo caps depending on where you look for them but they are all about the same thing. So this adventure was actually not to bad to do. It took a bit of time but that is only because it was the first one. I was able to make it this morning before Hubby left for work. WOOHOOO that was exciting for me.

Now keep in mind while I was doing this I had a thought that had nothing to do with the task at hand. I tend to do that. My mind wanders A LOT! My boss had given me a package of sugar cookie mix that someone gave her. It was sitting on the table so I had to move it to make the hat. So I moved it to the kitchen so I could make it. But I didn't want to make cut outs and little balls were so boring so I had an idea. Once they are cool and I taste them if it worked I will make it a bonus recipe on the recipe of the week next week so stay tuned.

So now that I have gotten totally off track. I am pretty happy with the way this hat turned out and I can't wait to see if we have an adventures in nursing part 3!
