Pixie Hat a See Kate Sew Pattern

Pixie Baby Bonnet Pattern See Kate Sew

I’ve struggled to get a hat that fits nice and snug to baby’s ears. Most hats that provide actual warmth seem to start sizing around 12 months. Not helpful. I’ve been stop gapping with hand mades, we’ve been blessed with relatives that knit. Now that we are swinging into spring I’m looking for lightweight, still warm-ish, hats that block the wind.

Enter the Pixie hat. The new See Kate Sew pattern is a super quick sew.  It also is just small enough to be a great spot to use knit scraps.

I Heart You a Baby Quilt

Heart Quilt, Baby Quilt

I’m as guilty as the next pinner on Pinterest. So many projects, so many boards, so many pins. But when I saw this pin in my feed shortly before Valentine’s day I knew I needed to make this one! The Pin I was inspired by was actually inspired by another quilt, and I’ve seen others since then so I’m happy to add mine the heart quilt collection!
