"I make foam hat patterns for a living."
When I say this, more often than not, it makes me feel a bit ridiculous, and I often stop and ask myself if this little thing I do, surrounded in bits of foam and glue, actually makes the world a better place. That's why I love it when I get an email from someone, who, in whatever little way, has had their life enriched by my random foam projects.
The other day, I got one of those emails, and it really touched me, so I asked if I could share it here on my blog. So, many thanks to Gautier and his beautiful wife for allowing me to share their story. Here's the email:
I just love it so much when people are able to create something they can be proud of, especially in our society of mass produced, throw away goods.
Thanks again, Gautier for sharing with me, and I wish you and your wife all the best!!
(and yes, the pattern has been updated to fit larger sizes, so hopefully no one else will need to resize the pattern to fit their heads!)
