There are 4 kids that hold a really special place in my heart. And they were all born in December, so I made each of them a hat for their birthday.
First I started with baby Brendan's hat. I used this Newborn Ballcap Pattern, and it worked super duper easy! To make it look more like a newsboy cap than a baseball cap, I added a double-crochet band with buttons to the front above the bill.
Bella's hat I knew had to have pink in it, and be "princess-y". So I went with a beret style hat, that was white and pink, and then added a brown ruffle-y ribbon around it to tie it into the boys' hats. I used this pattern for Bella's hat.
"Patchy Puppy Dog Beanie" pattern.
I promise I'll have a sewing post up soon, but please bear with me as I post the "other stuff I do" in the meantime! :)
