Hee! Have I mentioned how much I love seeing Browncoats of the world sporting one of my pretties? I loves it I do. ;) Thank you to Janiene and Gerald!

These totes were made from re-purposed vintage Return of the Jedi twin sheet sets! The fabric was barely used, and has been washed and then interfaced for durability. More details about these particular totes can be found at Ma Cobb's Hat Shoppe!

Thank you much for my new hat. The rest of the crew is very jalus and wish they had a mom like you who loved them. Little Kaylee likes it, and Wash said it makes people know I am brave when they see me wear it. I think it is cunning the way you made it and it will keep my hed warm in my travels.
I am sorry sis is not feeling good. She has been sickly since she came down with that case of the cold robbies. My job is sometimes dangerus but its that nutcase girl on bord who really scares me.
Love your son,
Just wanted to thank Bob for this fantastic in-character letter to Ma. I love it! :)

This one is from Molly! A very cunning hat, and her own matching scarf. I also like her tee (tee hee!).
This one makes me giggle! This is actually my aunt trying on a hat that I was sending out west to BC for one of my cousins. And that is indeed me standing behind her. Ha ha, I am strangely hat-less! ;)
Alrighty, I'm off! Don't forget about the January free-give away code (find a link to the post on the right)! These buttons are going fast fast fast! I'm thinking that I will have to post some up in my shoppe once January is over. But for now they are free free free! Get 'em while the gettin' is good! :)

I shot them against the cover of my brand-spankin' new X-Files: I Want To Believe DVD, which looks pretty awesome (imho). I really like their simplicity and the fact that other people who know and enjoy The X-Files will definitely get it, and those who don't get it might just be intrigued enough to ask about it. And just as a little incentive, all X-Files button purchases from Ma Cobb's Hat Shoppe will come with a couple extra little X-Filey goodies. :) So enjoy!
I've been meaning to add these for awhile, but the holiday rush kinda left me short on time. As prepared as I tried to be I still only just managed to stay on top of things. But it was definitely a good lesson to learn and I will for sure be waaaay more prepared for the season next year!
It's kinda funny: I had my little "300th hat" celebration back in November sometime (I believe the actual order date of #300 was November 4th). And then I was so busy that I barely noticed my "400th hat" milestone passing me by! On December 17th I received my 400th hat order! Woot! Currently I am well into the 400's and going strong! So yeah, if you were wondering why I was absent from blogging during the holidays, it was because since the beginning of November I've knit, oh, about 140 hats! Wow! It is endlessly fascinating to me that a cancelled TV show from years back is still finding followers loyal enough to purchase a slightly odd-looking (but still very cunning) hat. But I loves it, I do! :) So thank you to you all for making my little shoppe a success, and for giving me my best year EVER! Thankee-sai!

These are my "ode to Jayne's hat" series of buttons. They all contain a Jayne hat, on various backgrounds with the phrases:
"sweetest hat ever""pretty cunning dontcha think?" "Big Damn Hero" "browncoat" and
"not afraid of anything."
I've had the designs kicking around for awhile, but I haven't been selling them as of yet. I suppose that their popularity as the January free-give away will probably determine whether or not I'll start selling them on etsy. So please let me know what you think: fadingendlessly[at]gmail.com! Would you buy these? As a set, or just individually? Which design is your favourite? I'm really curious to know.
Alright, that's all for me for now, but I've got loads of news to spread so keep a look out in the next couple weeks!
