I'm not really sure what section this should go under, but this seems like the closest I can get to anything appropriate!
My girlfriend lost her favourite hat, so I said that I would make her a new one. A couple weeks later, she felted a sweater she loved in the wash, and I remarked on how that would be perfect for a new hat. A couple of weeks after that, I have finally got around to making it!
Since she bikes a lot, I wanted something which would be warm and close-fitting to her head. I came up with this little elf cap:
The outside is part of an old dress that I had saved for the fabric, and the interior is lined with her sweater. I made all the decorations (tie cords, leaf appliques, and tassel) myself!

The whole thing is fitted perfectly to her head, and with two layers of fabric it is super warm!
