Hats, Hats, Hats

I have been working on baby hats for a Babies In Need humanitarian project that our church is holding this Saturday. They are asking for donations of baby items as well as people to come and make items. Just for fun I timed myself this morning when making the hat above. It took 40 minutes. Not too bad. The pattern for the hat is from

The pattern did not include the flower, I just made it up. Email me if you would like the flower pattern.

Above are some more hats I made. The "tall" pattern is one I just created. The pattern is at the bottom of the blog.

Below is a piture of a hat I made a long time ago but was recently fished out of the halloween box. It is one of the first patterns I created without a pattern. And I didn't write it down, sorry.

My daughter didn't like wearing the hat very well.
