It's been a while since I shared something. Here's some children's hats I made. An Owl, and a Monster. I used a pattern for the owl, and it turned out quite a bit larger than I expected. Then Using a beanie pattern I'm more comfortable with, modified a little from what I learned in the owl hat pattern, I made a monster hat.

It only took me about 5 mins... When you aren't trying to carfully carve out the inside, to make it perfect and look nice, when you peer inside... It goes really fast! I didn't waste anything. The peices from the eyes and mouth were added to his spew to make it chunkier. hehehe...I always wanted to make one of these, I didn't know it would be so fast, I think I'll have to make one every year!
My husband came up with this idea, and then asked me to make him a Bert Hat. So I came up with this for him. He said he wanted a yellow cone-shaped hat, with a uni-brow, and tuft of hair at top.
I've had a couple people ask me when they see this picture "you actually got him to wear it? he doesn't seem too happy!" But then I have to explain to them it was all his idea in the first place, and he requested it. He always looks sorta grumpy, even when he smiles. :) Just who he is I guess...
|Actual size is about 8 inches tall.|
When I made this one for him, I let him help me stuff the head, body and limbs. He thought that was great! he'd grab the little pieces of fleece, and then poke them down into the little parts. Now he plays with it most days, he really likes it. It's even a toy he's willing to share with his baby sister, but not usually for too long, just a few seconds.
This set's pretty simplistic, I didn't really do anything fancy, but it's for a boy so I don't think fancy is a requirement :)
