The kids were playing Gnome this weekend, something they do often, and I offered up hats. I had a felted red sweater in my stash (with flashy gold buttons that
Sage quickly gathered for his Flashy-Gold-Button Collection).
and we stitched and we laughed and then…
I was in the company of two wee garden gnomes all day.
They couldn't have been happier, and the hats couldn't have been simpler. The sweater was a cardigan, and I used one sleeve and one side of the front for each hat. Lupine wore hers with great seriousness all day. Each time we would go outside she would shout "Gnoooooome hat! My gnoooooomie hat!" and run to her hat basket to collect it. (She refuses to keep it with our costumes. She keeps it with her sunhats.)
May your week bring some beautifully simple craft surprises your way!
