I made this baby hat with ears a couple of months ago. I made it according to the vintage directions. It just would not fit right. It was made too tight around the neck. I took those stitches out and made ties instead of a strap ans a button. The back has two seams and it does not look as nice as it should. Any seam will take away from the beauty of a handmade item. I went over the top of the seam with a crocheted slip stitch and gave the seam a little gathering. This helped the seam look much better.
When I made package decorations a few months back, I know you thought I was nuts to make this one. Well here it is on a gift box. I think it goes splendidly with the box. The materials I used to make the decorations are re-cycled magazine cut outs, scrap-book paper cut outs, and a decorative brad in the center. I used glue dots for attachment to the boxs.
Inspiration for the next project.
