Soon it will be spring and the water will warm up. Yes it will. And so it occurred to me that my snowflake / Swimflakes swimming hat will be right out of season. With this in mind I thought I would design a more spring-like hat. Something green, with growing things.
That was the plan… but it’s funny how things come out sometimes. Somehow what the design turned into was Sea Monsters, frolicking with an overabundance of springlike joy, no doubt.
I am going to get these hats printed, and, like the ‘Swimflakes’ ones (which are now sold out but will be back in the autumn), I’ve put the Sea Monsters hat available for order in my Etsy shop, before I put the actual order in. This gives you a chance to order the hat(s) you want in the colours you want. I’ll put the order in this coming week, so there isn’t too much of a wait. I will also order extra hats, but last time the Swimflakes hat sold out quickly, so if you are interested in ordering one of these hats in might be best not to wait too long. They are good sturdy silicone hats, a bit warmer than the latex ones so perfect for open water swimming, though of course you can also wear them in the pool.
To order, please go to my Etsy shop. I’m printing the design in just one colour again, but I got a little carried away and have selected eight different combinations of a coloured background plus black or white image.
Meanwhile, here are some pictures of the finished design, plus work in progress…
