My challenge this Christmas was to find a handmade gift for the boys/young men in our family. I pondered and pondered until I found this fantastically adorable hat on someone else's blog. I love sewing blogs! Anyhow, once I made one for my little man I knew it fit the bill. Hah, I just reread that sentence and am feeling fairly brilliant for the pun I just made! Check out the hat - I made 8 total, several in this camouflage corduroy and several in a tan color. My favorite ended up being the one I made for Reba using a pink corduroy. Too cute! Here's the link for the blog where I found the directions: http://mushroomvillagers.wordpress.com/the-eddie-cap-tutorial/ I couldn't believe how easy it was. For the bigger boys I just made my octagon bigger by 1/2 inch to 1 inch. Enjoy!
