That being said, I recently received a whole box of gorgeous, cozy, Goodwill bound sweaters. My immediate inclination in such instances is to throw them in the washer and dryer and FELT them! However, the sweaters in this particular batch were mostly cashmere (or cashmere blends), so I decided to make them into warm, fuzzy, comfy hats for Burke and his cousins. The method I used is a combo of the lovely chez beeper bebe tutorial and an idea I saw at Denver’s oh-so-fabulous Holiday Handmade craft fair (I don’t remember the designer, but she’d refashioned old sweaters into darling little elf hats and sweater pants).
3. Turn inside out. Tie pom poms on each ‘ear.’ Cover the bean of your darling little one with this supercute number and he gets ever cuter. Send a couple of these fuzzy numbers to your nieces. Make some more? 🙂
