Little hats now.....

I was reading through all my favourite blogs and Jo from jozartdesigns had blogged about some really gorgeous little pixie hats she has made last year as advent calendars for her family.  

She knew I would be up for the challenge and would really love the idea so I have been playing with some oddments of wool and this is what I have come up with so far.


It's so much fun.  I am changing colours and am making up designs as I go along so it's a really fun challenge.....and I'm not short of oddments of wool as you can imagine  :-)  They all need sewing up and trimming with bells and bobbles but aren't they cute?  Of course it's too late for advent calendars for this year but there will be other years....I hope  :-)

These are really cute. I really like the little fluted white one. The elfs could do with some warm hats in this weather!!

They are amazing! What a brilliant idea and I imagine something you can easily pick up nad put down in the evenings, these dark nights!
What a good feeling also, to be eating up your scraps of wool. Fab-u-lous!!!
