Is it too early to be thinking about Christmas gifts?

I thought I'd share with you a fun and easy idea I came across a couple weeks ago. I was watching Studio 5, a local program here in Utah. They demonstrated these super cute hats that you make out of old sweaters. It just so happened that I had a bag of sweaters sitting by the back door, waiting to be taken to DI. I thought the project looked easy enough, so what did I have to loose. They were so easy and fun to make that I ended up whipping out 20+ hats in just 2 days.

I thought they would make such fun Christmas gifts! Click here for the a link to the tutorial.

I used a 9" square for adult hats, a 7 1/2" square for my little girl who is 15 months, and a 7" square for my niece who is 3 months. You'll understand what that means after you watch the tutorial. Also, just like the woman in the tutorial, I do not have a surger so I just used the zig-zag stick on my sewing machine for the flowers.

If you decide to make some hats and have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me!

The girl who demonstrated these is a good friend of mine! I'm wearing one of her hats as we speak. So glad you whipped out some, aren't they fun??

That's so awesome Mariah. Does she sell her hats or have a website? I'd be happy to post it, for anyone who doesn't want to make their own.
