I have drawn up the patterns that I used in case any of you would like to try making them. Just click on the image and it will make it larger so you can print it out. To make the hat you cut out to pieces of outer fabric and two pieces of lining (For the lining I used a t-shirt that had gotten a hole in it). Put right sides together and take a 2/8 inch seam on the outer fabric and a 3/8 inch seam on the lining. Then trim 1/8 inch off of the lining. Turn the outer piece right side out and then place the lining inside of it. (At this point there should be no rough seams showing.) Turn the rough edges on the bottom of the hat in to the inside so they are meeting together and sew together using a top stitch. Then cut an acorn out of brown fabric and applique to the lower part of the hat on the lining. Then turn it up so the lining is showing for about 1 inch. You are all done! (If these instructions are terribly confusing, please feel free to ask questions in the comments or e-mail me.) For the mittens check out the tutorial at Write, Mama, Write. Both mittens and hat could be made in much larger sizes as well.
It is your turn now!! Please leave you links for homemade gifts or other homemade Christmas stuff! (It doesn't have to be a gift that you are giving for Christmas this year it can be one from the past or something you are using for some other occasion if you would like.)
When you link I would appreciate if you would link back to a Homemade Christmas at Proverbs 31 Living in your post. Thank you!
