New hats

It's fall and she needed hats. I've knit hats, but thought I'd try to sew some. These were super, super easy and she loves them, as you can see. She is a little over two months old and the fleece fits great (nice and snug); the knit one turned out a little big and falls down over her eyes sometimes. I used this tutorial.  Just make sure you cut the hat in the right direction (so it can stretch to fit baby's head). Also, I don't have a serger, just used a regular sewing machine for the knit fabric.  Speaking of sewing machines, I just bought a new machine.  I have had three machines in my life and all three were hand-me-downs.  I almost cried opening up a brand new machine.  It is a Brother CS-6001 and, for the record, the pink fleece hat was the first project ever sewn on the machine.
