It has been so cold in Dallas lately that I couldn't stop myself from doing a weekend quickie DIY. This cute little hat from Lotta Jansdotter's book Simple Sewing for Baby was so easy and took about 30 minutes total. That's with both my boys up and running around like crazy people while I was cutting and sewing.
I think the final piece turned out quite nice; although I would have liked to use two different fabrics like what I show above. Unfortunately the darker brown fabric wasn't stretchy and Liam has a seriously big noggin (lots of brain power I think.) I suggest measuring your little one's head before cutting your fabric, as I had to make mine a little wider than suggested in the book.
Now, before you go thinkin' that all my DIY projects are going to be sewing or kiddo projects, let me give you a little teaser for this week's DIY that will start tomorrow... SIT tight and stay tuned! See you tomorrow. xo
