Fleece Hats for the Holidays

Adorable Niece in Owl HatIMG_2169

This was made for a Christmas gift last year, I had a niece who requested a fleece owl hat so I purchased a pattern from Youcanmakethis.com

and set off making hats, I was not sure which color she would like best so I gave her both and she loved them equally. She was wearing one when I saw her on Christmas day. This pattern was so easy to make and the fleece is super simpe to work with. After making the owls I found altering the pattern to make other animals quite easy. I ending up making a few bears, a racoon, fox and cat.

Felt Happy Meal

Burgerfelt lunchBurger mealFelt Happy MealI have had so much fun making felt food over the last year and now I have decided it is time to get back to blogging so I will start with a Happy Meal I made for two little girls birthdays. I made one happy meal with a burger and the other with chicken nuggets. This was a very fun project and I did not use patterns for most of the items I just looked online at several tutorials and used their ideas for a reference. The french fries were by far the most time consuming part of the project. It is amazing how many fries fit into the tiny fry box. Along with the Happy meals I also made apple pies. Once I finished the food I went to my local Mc Donald’s and they generously gave me the fry and pie boxes. To complete this gift I included a gift card so each of the girls could enjoy a Happy Meal for lunch to go along with their felt toy. This project was so much fun it has sent me a little crazy with felt food creations. I will post more soon.
