I’ve got more Holiday Hints for Handmade Gifts for you! Today it’s all about hats!
This Bomber Hat is one of my all-time favorite projects from Warm Fuzzies. It’s made with 2 layers of soft squishy felted wool so it is super warm and comfy! If you sensitive types are worried about the potential itch factor, try lining it with cashmere or even polar fleece.
Also from Warm Fuzzies is the super-fast-to-make Pillbox Hat. Make it simple or embellish with appliqué. (hey, look, I finally figured out how to put the accent over the “e” in the word appliqué!)
The Reversible Bucket Hat pattern is available in my etsy shop as a pdf pattern. I’ve had this in my sights to make in corduroy for fall/winter and oilcloth for spring! This particular version is made from a pair of my son’s outgrown cargo pants!
And this little schmoopy is wearing the repurposed cashmere Luxe Baby Hat from Sewing Green. Such fun and personality!
Stop back for more Holiday Hints later this week!
These ideas are terrific! Thanks for sharing, the Pillbox hat is my favorite, my 11 year old would LOVE one.
I need to scope out your book. These are wonderful projects. I especially like the way you have color peeking through the circles on one of the pillbox hats. I am making a hat similar to your pillbox hat out of recycled sweaters right now for my sister in law. It is going to be so luxurious. It is lined with a favorite old cashmere sweater of my husbands which had holes in the elbows. I’m looking for a silver pin or a gorgeous silver streaked button to embellish it where I have two parts on the brim come together. I love your blog! Beth
I’ve made the pillbox hat, it’s great! The bomber is next on my list. Thanks for the ideas :)
That’s lovely! I never thought warm fuzzies had these kind of projects. Somehow I kept thinking it was about small stuffed animals and such…
But now after seeing all this I ordered my copie!
Oooh! I especially like the second one with the two adorable girls — doubt it would look as good on an old lady like me, but my niece would sure love it! I’ve posted a link on childmade.com.
