I made my 6-month old nephew a baby owl hat. I didn’t put any yarn tufts on top because I wasn’t confident they would stay put on an active baby - he would exactly be the kind of infant to put pulled-out yarn in his mouth and swallow it! Eep.
I did put some braided tails though - those are tied tight and can’t be pulled apart.
Personally, I think this hat is a hoot. (Teehee.)
I make these hats over at my hat shop, Hats and Things.
So my good friend Marj asked if I could make a newsboy for her newborn Adele (less than 2 months) and said if I could make it pink and purple that would be great. So I tried making one and here’s how it turned out:
I would have taken photos of it on my hat stand, but it was so tiny it wouldn’t even come close to fitting!
I made the flower on it bright purple and sewed a black button in the middle.
The colors are especially bright under artificial lighting, but they are more muted in the daylight. I hope Marj’s little darling looks adorable in it!
