So I whipped this hat up last night and I am wrapped with it - it fits Baby J like a glove! I found an old hat that I liked when he was newborn and traced a bigger outline around it. What a fluke, that it worked so well. If anyone is interested I might make a tutorial up for it. They would make lovely gifts in merino. I also made a pattern for a long sleeve kimono top for him, but I didn't have the guts to sew it up to see if it worked. It's going to require me to make some binding out of the fabric, which seems like a bit to much hard work, hopefully tonight I'll get some inspiration to finish it off.
Look what I got in the post this morning! My beautiful prize from the fabulous blog Two Little Banshees. I won the loveliest "In a Spin" quilt pattern and five pieces of fabric, I love it! Thanks so much Kate. And look at that gorgeous note card Kate made. So simple yet so effective! Love it!
