I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! I had 25 people over to my house for lunch and we had a wonderful time! Luckily everyone brought something so I didn’t have to cook everything, it turned out great!
Yesterday I posted about how to make a “Sweet Lil Owl Onesie” and today (as promised) I’m going to show you how I made the matching flower hat!
To make the flower, I traced 5 large circles (about 2″ wide) and 4 smaller circles (about 1.5″ wide) onto some of the striped t-shirt fabric. (I like to use whatever circular objects I can find to trace circles).
Then I cut them out and folded them all (except 1 of the large circles) into quarters (folded them in half and then half again so they made quarter-pie shapes)
I laid the 1 larger circle flat, then laid 4 of the large folded circles on top. Then I sewed them in place (I just sewed a few stitches around the center of the circle).
I laid the smaller folded circles on top, staggering where they overlapped. Then I sewed around the center of the flower and fluffed up the petals (ooh, pretty flower!).
To make the hat I traced one of our infant hats (leaving a 1/4″ margin) on a piece of jersey fabric that was folded in half.
I made the bottom of the hat extra long because I wanted to fold it over a couple times.
After cutting out the hat shapes I sewed them together with a 1/4″ seam around the top and sides.
Then I turned it inside-out, rolled up the bottom of the hat, and sewed a few stitches at each seam to hold it in place.
For the finishing touch I used fabric glue to attach the cute little flower to the hat.
I think it turned out SO cute and it looks perfect with the owl onesie!
