Silly Hats and Feeding Bears

After seeing this post from Claire, I had to try to make this Pixie Hat. Ingrid and I took a trip to Salvation Army yesterday and got a pretty green sweater that was half off. I got it home and tried to sew it together, and found that the needle just pulled the sweater down and ripped it. Fun! After reading the manual to the sewing machine, I found a tip to use wax paper under the fabric, so I tried that--it worked so well! I added some ribbon for ties and viola, in ten minutes I had a cute little hat! The spots weren't on the sweater originally--I'm going to blame drool for those.

I used the same basic idea with flannel and a lining fabric and came up with this one:

Ingrid wasn't too pleased to have her picture taken, but she did keep the hat on the whole time we were outside! Personally, I think it's the cutest thing ever...

Unless this is the cutest thing ever:
I looked over at Ingrid today and found her feeding goldfish crackers to her teddy bear. Every day she does something more adorable than the last!!

Man she is the cutest thing ever. I've been trying so hard to find a hat Ben will keep on his head. Ugh. I just want his little ears to be warm. I figure eventually he'll give in and realize I'm right.

I have a little spaceship pixie hat sitting here, you can see if he'll keep that on!
