Seeing as how I don't like to spend money, and I don't enjoy shopping, and I want entirely LESS stuff than I already have, I'm thinking this will be a *mostly-handmade Christmas.
(*"mostly" because my dear Man can't help buying some things that
My Mom and Mimi gave me tons of fabric and supplies, so it's really only a matter of the time I have to complete things. Starting in mid-November probably wasn't too bright.
Anywho, I grabbed some felt and cut it like this. No pattern. You know I'm a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda seamstress, most of the time (although I DID measure around NatureMan's head, to get the width right.)
The ties, on the left side, are just two strips of fleecy fabric, pulled long.
Here's what you do:
...and then sew those nifty ties on the sides.
I stitched it all together by hand, on the outside, for a "more natural" gnome/elf-hat look.
I need to make each of the kids one before Christmas!
These hats are fast and easy to make, when you're watching a movie, keeping an eye on the kids outside, or riding in a car.
Have fun creating!!
