2012 hip pocket hybrid kites

Bob's and Charmayne's kites in 2012

Hip Pocket Hybrids


 This year we revisited the Hip Pocket kite for our grandchildren and 4 of their friends. We made 8 in total. I used scraps for some, appliquéd simple designs on some, put designs on the top canopy to peak through the hole. It is hard to photograph those little designs on dancing kites. Bob put flames on Arno's sled with an airbrush and I spent way too much time turning Riley's kite into a spray painted giraffe pattern with a giraffe peaking through the hole. Can you see her name in the pattern?
