I’m also in love with making these little hats. I can’t seem to stop; I want to make one in every color of thread that I have.
Here’s what I’ve made so far—12 of them.
Then, as I was making them, the wheels started turning. What else could I put in them besides potpourri? Oh, I found a strip of felt that I had used to make a tongue for the crocheted dog “Drama Dog”. I just rolled it up like a tape measure and sewed it together and stuffed it into the crown of the hat and…
…voila, it’s a tiny pincushion for those little appliqué pins.
Next up, I want to use some starch on some and give them a set of flowers and a pin back and make a lapel pin out them.
These are just a few things you can use these little hats for. I think they would make really cute Mother’s Day gifts. My hats are off to all the mothers out there and hope all of you have a Happy Mother’s Day.
