Felix has loved this hat since Tui first gave it to him. He’s been wearing it daily for about a year — even to bed, sometimes — and its looking the worse for wear.
So I decided to make him a new one for Christmas.
And, while I was at it, I made one for Cali too.
For both, I used this pattern. The fabric came from thrifted suit pants (finest Italian wool, $1 each!) The lining is cotton voile from my stash.
The project was a bit challenging, and my top stitching is far from perfect. But the babies won’t notice that, I’m sure.
I hope Rhea will send me photos later, but for now I have some Christmas morning FaceTime screen grabs.
Felix thought the hat was fine, but that the bubble wrap was AWESOME!
Cali kept hers on for approximately 2 seconds before pulling it off.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
