Extra! Extra!

I enrolled Sweetpea in a 4-week arts camp through our school district in an attempt to keep her busy this summer.  One of the classes she signed up for is Musical Theater.  On Friday, the last day of camp, the class will be performing a number or two from the movie, Newsies.  Sweetpea informed me that she would be needing a newsboy cap, and I found a very quick and easy pattern here at Red Heart Yarn.  I think the cap came out kinda cute but here's the kicker:  Sweetpea doesn't want to wear it.  I guess that's the downside of making handmade things for others; they're not always as well-received as the maker would hope for.  At least she was willing to pose for a couple of pictures:

Here is the link to my Ravelry notes on this project.

Here is one of the songs that they will be performing:

Bee (from Hive of Drama fame)!  Can you spot a certain someone that you love in this clip?


  1. Jeez did you see James Franco too?! wild! I love the hat and you know WHO will definitely wear it!

  2. Good eye, Bee! I didn't recognize Mr. Franco when I first watched it. Does every actor these days have to go through the Disney machine?
