This is entered under the Design category of Whip-Up's September hat competition.

37 weeks pregnant and I needed a project! I put aside making burp cloths and diaper wipes and decided to try this. I think matching mittens, and hats for baby and daddy are going to be on the way.

I used all recycled and local materials starting with the remainder of the fisherman's sweater I used for the bird bag. (It was a BIG sweater) I hand sewed this together using yarn I bought from Sunrise Acres Farm. I then embroidered little branches and french knot flowers into it using wool felt from my mothers stash of rug hooking materials. I love raw edges and the chunky quality of the wool felt. I am looking forward to fall to wear this while toting around the new babe.
