Whale Baby Hat

I love to make things for my two sweet boys.
However, I sometimes get in a rut when it comes to embellishment ideas for their clothing.
Flowers and ribbons are so cute but just don't cut it. And I find trucks, cars, and many animals far too detailed to cut out well.

I wanted to make my 3 month-old a hat for fall. [One that actually fit his large head.] I used an old t-shirt.

I used this tutorial to make the hat but drew a larger pattern.

I decided on a whale made from fleece.
I hand-sewed it onto the hat after free-hand cutting it.

I think anything would look cute on him. But maybe I'm a little biased.
