Countdown to Alaska Project #1 - Fleecy Monster Hat & Mittens
Eamon has a giant parka that my parents got for a steal at an outdoor store, but here in Virginia, he rarely wears it, so he doesn't have any accessories to match. First on my list for pre-Alaska crafting was to make him two hats to match - a fleece hat and a knit hat. I'm waiting for the yarn to arrive for his knit hat, so I decided to finish up the sewn hat first, and I had SO MUCH leftover fabric that I decided mittens would be a good idea as well.

to get a neon green that matched his jacket perfectly!
|I LOVE paper applique. I wish I'd figured it out years ago.|
|So, my kid's the cutest ever, right? |
This is his "cheese" face.
|The start of the mittens. They look huge, but I promise they will fit!|
|And just a funny picture. |
"Mama! Helpa me! I stuck!"
