The thoughts, sewing projects, and fabric oglings of a dedicated sewist.

Hat's On!

Another problem I had to solve over the holidays was substituting harder-to-make gifts with easier-to-make gifts (which is all I had time for).  My girls needed larger winter hats so I thought that might be a fun thing to try.  I looked around online for inspiration and then came up with this:

These are the hats I made for my girls.  I used dark purple velour that I picked up at the Economy Shop and fabric scraps for the flowers.  This was my first time doing applique and I'm pleased with how it turned out!

Since then I've made one for myself and one for my best friend's daughter, both out of fleece.  I think I might try selling these on Etsy next year (unless someone needs a hat this winter, that is . .  .)
