Mafe Maria: Personal stories by autism parent mentor, Maria Stultz

In Progress

This is one of those projects I usually come up with, that sound like a great, relatively easy–to–do idea, and then end up taking a lot of time and work. But that’s why I love it. Probably doesn’t have any etsy potential because the price I’d have to set for it to be worth my time doing it for others, would be way too high and nobody would pay it. But it’s just one of those experiments I just had to try. One of those things you think sound hard and pointless, buy why not?… You could totally do this yourself, in your own way. Oh, and it would be so cute.

In progress

The image shows the product at less than 10% completion. It’s a little gift for Joaquin. Any guesses of what it is?… Hint: I have one.

    It looks like a quilted pot mit or coaster. :) Will it be a nice quilt for him?

    With the multiple–strand braid, this project keeps getting even better.

    Good try Petie!… It does look quilt–ish. Wanna guess again?

    I guessed a hat on the flickr feed. :)

    And the answer is… A baby hat! Inspired by the traditional Colombian vueltiao. Unfortunately our baby model has been cranky because of teething pain, so photos of him wearing the hat don’t show how happy he truly is with it.
