A Baby Turkey Hat
In the spirit of baby hats, I was looking for an idea I had to see if anyone else had attempted. However, I discovered this one in the process and had to share. I wish I had found this before Thanksgiving, but alas, it's good for Christmas too, right? It's from a blog called goingcrafty.com. Is it not the cutest? She has the pattern available for PDF download too. I love it!!
And in looking at her blog, I noticed this interesting patch of a squirrel on fire, which was from This American Life in relation to a story on TAL. So I had to go check it out. I'm currently listening to the story as I type this. If you want to listen, here is the direct link.
Off to construct my baby hat for a tutorial. Keep your fingers crossed...baby is sleeping in her crib and I go sew. You have no idea what a feat this is for any of my children. We are usually co-sleepers and a lot of times she sleeps attached at the boob in the recliner, but I've been gradually getting her to the crib because she HATES sleeping next to me in the bed. I think she's a very light sleeper and daddy and mommy bother her too much. So far, we are up to 4 hours alone in the crib next to the bed. My secret is an electric blanket to warm up her crib before I put her in it. It seems to work like a charm.
