I had the joy of sewing a few things over the weekend. It felt good to hear the sewing machine whirling once again. I like using my walking foot and a tiny zig-zag stitch when working with fleece. I used the fleece I had on hand and used Vanessa from Crafty Gemini's tutorial on You Tube and her free downloadable pattern from her blog to make a fleece hat. I first made her beanie pattern but it did not cover my daughter's ears. Her pattern for a hat with ear flaps worked like a charm. I hope to post pictures of my daughter wearing her hat later. I also tried several headband patterns. This one pictured below was cute but the 1/4 inch casing for the elastic was challenging. Will post link later.
