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.

Mary is going to a birthday party and we were at a loss as to what to give as a gift, when I mentioned an art bag Mary got very excited so here is what I created. I found this great fabric with owls. The pattern is bright green and pink very girly. I made a bag with outside pockets for color pencils and then I altered a composition book with scrapbook paper and a larger version of the same owl for a journal. Once I got started on this I could not seem to stop. I fabric appliqued the larger owl onto a felt pocket and we inserted watercolors, then I made a sleeve with the print fabric on the outside and bright pink on the inside to slide over a sketch pad and as a finishing touch I made a crayon holder. I have had so much fun making this I sure hope Joelle enjoys it.
