Newboy Hat Love

I feel as if I start all my posts off by apologizing for my lack of posting, but I figure you all understand that when one has little kids, finding a moment to go to the bathroom in peace is difficult, let alone posting several times a week. Don't get me wrong, I have been busy getting things done around here. I have some exciting posts coming up!

We are in full Christmas gift making mode here at my house... and when I say we, I mean me. I get to have a 6 week old baby come stay at my house in December during the day while her mom and dad are at work, so I want to have as many things done before then as my time will be limited as soon as she gets here. My list is made for all the gifts I am making. I am doing a completely homemade Christmas again this year! Oh how I love doing that.... until the week before Christmas when I am staying up into the wee hours of the night rushing to get things done. This year is going to be much different! I have to make a list of all the things I am making and stick to it, otherwise I get too excited about things I see and want to add new things to my list and then forget what I was going to do in the first place! However, this year I am keeping myself as organized as I can and making one gift per person.

As it gets cold here in the Northwest, my daughter needed a new hat. I have been wanting to make her a hat for some time now, I just didn't know what kind. I have been loving the newsboy hats lately and wanted to make some for myself (which I did, but that's another post). So I went through my scraps and made this little beauty for her. And now because it turned out so well, I am making some for my nieces!
I used some old cream fleece that I had and lined the inside with the same fabric as the flower.
I tried to do a tutorial, but I can't seem to get the right verbiage. So here are a few links that helped me figure out how to make this.
Now here is a slight confession: I have been toying with the idea of selling some of the things that I make. It seems like it's the new popular thing to do, which has held me back as I don't want to do what everyone else is doing. However, I do love seeing my creations on others and in other people's homes. It makes me so happy. So, I'm still in the planning stage of deciding to sell things, but I wanted to give you a heads up if I seem a little stressed.

As Christmas is coming close, I am going to do a little "Christmas Gift Idea" series made up of inexpensive Etsy gifts that would be great for all ages! So if you have a shop or know of some great shops and would like it to be featured on here, shoot me an email with the link to the shop at! Also, if you want to do a giveaway as well, I would be more than happy to post it on here too! I love helping out small businesses! My mother-in-law asked for a list of ideas for gifts for me and most of them were Etsy shops! So please let me know!
