Elijah’s New Hat and Mittens

10 Jan

Doesn't he just look darling?

What better way to usher in the New Year than with a new hat and matching mittens?  I recently sewed Elijah a new hat after fighting his old hat for a month.  (The old hat was way too big.)

Bundled up and ready for a walk. Don't you love how the hat matches the Stroller Snuggli?

I used McCall’s 5539 pattern for it and absolutely detested it!  I like the hat a lot but the pattern for the hat was horrible.  I ripped it out 3 times!  So now I am on the look out for a new hat pattern for next year.  Any suggestions?  I did make the mittens from the same pattern which were pretty easy.  Glad it turned out okay overall.  Now what to sew next?
