Like many owners of smarts, I have an unnaturally close relationship with my car.  Since this is our first Christmas together, I thought Ruby needed a little present too.

I'm very proud to present Ruby in her new Santa hat!

The hat is made out of a yard and a half of fake fur, about 4 yards of 72" red sparkle felt, and cussing.  A whole, whole, whole lot of cussing.  It was quite a project!  It's attached to the car with elastic straps at the side mirrors and tailgate, and an adjustable webbing strap under the roof.  Then I used my air compressor to blow up a plastic garbage bag to put under the hat to give it a little peak.

It's not great for a lot of driving, except when you can go slow and not get in the way, because the visibility isn't great, but I've taken it for a whirl in the neighborhood, and I got quite a few giggles.  On Saturday, she's going to wear it to a Blue Santa event be on display there with another smart whose owner bought a costume to dress his car up like Rudolph.  With luck, it will be hilarious.

I'm glad to share all of the steps that were involved in making it, if anyone is interested.   

Ruby and I both thank you for letting us show this project off!  Happy holidays to all!!!
