Adorable Monster Hat

Baby hat! A friend of mine from church is preggo with a baby boy and due next month, so the YW threw her a baby shower today. I made this little hat for her out of fleece. the hat was really easy to make. It was one piece of fleece 10x17'' sewed into a tube, then the top sewed up so it's kind of a little sack or pounch. Then I just gathered up the corners with a running stitch to make the ears and tied them off on the inside. The eyes and mouth are embroidered felt!
Then I drew and painted this little matching tag to attach. On the back it says, "Congratulations on your adorable little monster." Yeah, I dunno if it's cool to call someone's unborn baby a monster, but it was a risk I was willing to take... Happy Wednesday!

Oh my gosh, that's adorable! I call the munchkins I nanny for monsters and the parents just laugh. I think when it's meant in a light spirit (as opposed to "Your child is a horrible monster!") it's a cute nickname. :)

That's so freaking cute! I love the little ears! I'm sorry I haven't sent out your gift yet- my work starts before the post office opens and I don't get out until it's closed. It *will* get to you!
