Viking Hat...

I recently spotted this hat featured in a recent Real Simple magazine. I wanted the hat but I didn't want to pay the $50 price. What to do, what to do? Make one of course! I dug up an old sweater that I haven't worn in years, used some scrap fur from the fabric bin and voila! Oh, and might I add that on Pike's first time sporting the hat, I had a couple of people ask where we got the hat and upon saying that I made it, they said, "you could get a good little side business going you know."

so cute! And I love your resourcefulness! Isn't it funny when you pick up magazines like Real Simple, because it's simple if you're willing to fork over all of your income+

Side business indeed!

so frugal you are (:
Pike is even more adorable than before!
I have a sweater I was thinking of turning into a hat for myself but I am nervous to try. I can't seem to sew anything thick with my machine, maybe it is just me though... it always gets jammed. I will ask you when I see you next.
anyways, very cute!
