my darling and her new hat

Emma Grace has a new hat. And she like wearing it - because it's pretty and she looks so pretty when she's wearing it. :) (so nice not to be having battles about wearing a hat anymore!)

Really, she loves it (although that's hard to tell from this picture)!

I made the hat using the Petite Beret pattern from Vintage Knits for Modern Babies. It was a very easy pattern to work (although I still need to learn how to make an invisible seam when I'm finishing - maybe you could teach me Leah?) and the sizing was quite accurate.

I used a bit of super soft bamboo yarn for the hat band - so it would be soft and cozy against her face - and then cotton yarn that I re-purposed from a sweater that I wasn't wearing anymore for the rest of the hat.  My mom had given me a small hank of red wool tapestry yarn last fall, and I used that for the trim.

running in the park :)

The hat took about a week's worth of free time to make up, and I'm so glad that she has it to wear with her little coat now. She's such a little darling. <3


I'm linking this to some of these blogs - they have some really wonderful organizing and Valentine's ideas up!

What a beautiful hat! I love the ribbon in it as well. I'll have to check out that book. I love making baby hats as well :)
