Welcome to Reader Tutorial week here at Sew Sweetness! Each day this week will feature a wonderful step-by-step sewing tutorial from one of my readers. Today’s guest post is from Rachael at Imagine Gnats. I have to admit that my favorite thing about Racheal’s site is her embroidery work and Etsy shop! Check out this cool Valentine that she designed, too! Thanks Rachael!
see that silly hat on my head? well, last winter we found ourselves with a 2yo that refused to wear a winter hat (no matter how cold it was) and we simply could not find a solution. when i started seeing funky animal hats pop up all over the place, it seemed the logical thing to try my hand at making one.
spoiler: she didn’t like this one either. this year, though, she’s suddenly fine with hats. *sigh*
all that you need to make your own owl hat is a random selection of ill-fitting or otherwise unwearable sweaters, a few pieces of felt, scissors, and thread.
