Playing With Fleece in the Studio


Hello fellow bloggers, hope this week is going smoothly for all of you. I have been in my studio playing with some polar fleece that I had purchased a while back. I saw some really cute hats on the Martha Stewart website and Etsy so I decided to make some of my own. I have two bags of fabric yo-yo's that I made during a long drive to New York and I thought they would work beautifully as an embellishment. I made my hats in all different sizes..infant all the way to adult. I think they came out pretty cute.


I found some great red tartan plaid fleece and had a little more fun.
I would love to get your opinions on these little guys  With the endless variety of patterns available with fleece these could be adapted to any age or sex. I could really go crazy with my embellishing...hey Alison how about a little embroidery??? I could make some to coordinate with my felted childrens cardigans!!! Ooooooooo..the ideas are coming like crazy now. I look forward to hearing from you. Until then be kind and stay creative.

Oh boy! You're a genius Janet! I looooooove the tartan fleece - these will go like hot-cakes!! (the cream ones are lovely too but I naturally veer towards the tartan!) Fantastic :D

By the way, I love the name of your blog. The year we became empty-nesters, I made a theme Christmas tree. It had birds and lots of "empty nests" and related things on it.

Oh..Jacquelyn, I have a 'bird' tree also! Kindred spirits?

Love these, Janet....but then I haven't found anything you've created that I don't love. I think the creme colors are my favs and yes, you should definitely list them!

I'm not an expert on baby hats ;) But they look lovely to me - if I had to pick, then I prefer the cream ones; very stylish and understated.
