When I saw this fabric all I could think of was a special 18 month old little boy very dear to me. One of the patterns I purchased was a pattern of several toddler hats. I changed it a little bit because I wanted to make it adjustable. I cut out the hole in the back and added an adjustable velcro strip to the back. If I had it to do again, I would make the bill stiffer. Live & learn. I hope it fits him! Even if it doesn't, it was a lot of fun to make!

The fabric store that I frequent the most had patterns on sale for 99 cents for the past 2 or 3 weeks. Well, I couldn't resist. I bought a bunch of craft patterns that I normally would not have purchased because the regular prices are outlandish! I'm not really a cheap person, but, anywhere from $15.95 and upwards to $25.95 per pattern is too outrageous for me. I bought approximately 10-13 patterns in all and at 99 cents each. That's what I call a good deal.

I saw this cute little bunny pattern in a library book. Since I have tons of fleece in my stash, I thought that would be a fun little project. It really didn't make a significant dent in the stash! The pattern was a bit frustrating because the directions said to cut out the pattern and add enough for a seam allowance, which I thought was odd. Unfortunately, I forgot to do that! So I tried to sew it together very close to the edge. My own embellishment is the belly button. :-) The bunny hopped right into my grandson's arms!
