just for fun


I just wanted to share a little something that I whipped up as a baby gift before I left for vacation. I got inspiration for the hat from my friend Leanne, who made a ton of these beautiful hats last Christmas season and sold them at some craft shows. It's made from an old T-Shirt and I added some felt embellishments that I ordered from Etsy. It really is the easiest thing to make and is the perfect beginners sewing project.
To make it I drew out a pattern on some paper and then traced it onto the wrong side of the fabric and cut it out. I placed the wrong sides together and sewed the outline of the hat.
Then I hand sewed the flowers onto the hat. Easy peasey and cute, I think.

Oh and here is the little miss that I made the hat for, baby Meredith. Isn't she just so beautiful and sweet? I can't believe that I will get to hold and cuddle and take care of one of these tiny little humans in just less than 3 months. It's really getting to be very exciting!
