Hat Happy

The last couple of days I have gone Hat Happy.

Let me start from the beginning. My mom is on Pinterest…a lot! She found this ADORABLE set of Halloween hat patterns. As soon as I saw them I knew I was going to start sewing hats. On Monday I made 2 – both were attempts for Anne, but they were too small for her.

Kitty Hats

With all her curly hair…they were just a touch too tight – keep in mind she is almost 4 and I assumed the child’s sizes would work. I made the Child’s Size Small and the Child’s Size Large. Neither fit.  Yesterday I made her an Adult’s Size Small and that fit like a charm!

I decided that I couldn’t be left out of the fun…plus I am ALWAYS freezing, so I made myself a hat too!

Each of these patterns and MANY MANY more can be found on FleeceFun.com. Not only are there tons of free patterns but also some wonderful video tutorials.

So…are you wondering what I am doing with the two hats that were too small for Anne? I’m donating them to the October Hopeful Threads project – Hats Off!

Hopeful Threads

Have you been sewing this week? What are you working on? Today Anne and I are heading to JoAnns to buy the fabric for her costume, I see more fleece in my future.

    Love your hats! Anne’s seems a perfect match for what she’s wearing, and you look so cute in yours! Love that you found the perfect spot for donating the other two.

    When I was at uni I made a ton of mad fleecy hats for rowing, be careful, it’s a bit addictive!
