I've decided that this year I'm going to try and make as many Christmas presents as possible. Here is the first one that I've finished so far. It's a hat for my mom! She's going on vacation in the new year and has a hard time finding hats that fit because she has a pretty big head. Umm, I figure that I'm allowed to make fun of it because I also have a big head haha. I used Amy Butler's Sky Hat pattern. It was really easy to follow and took about 3 hours to finish. Fingers crossed that it fits and she likes it Smiley

Halfway through the sewing process I ended up adding a layer of heavy interfacing to the brim of the hat because I thought that is was a bit too floppy.

The hat:

If you are curious, here is what the pattern looks like on a real head!

That looks so adorable! And I'm not one to swoon over accessories. X3 Was this handsewn?

Anyway, as another big-headed person, I say 'rock on'!

That's a good looking hat! And good job you at trying for a handmade Christmas. I made gifts for all my nephews and nieces, but ran out of steam for everyone else. haha

Very cute Cheesy  I have to agree that having a big head sucks when finding hats.  I received the most adorable hat in a swap and it doesn't fit, it's not like I can go on a diet for my head either Huh

Ah great, it looks like it was bought in a shop.  Good work!  I don't have the balls to try and make a hat, besides, my head turns into an egg when I try on hats.  Yikes...
