My friend Christine made these adorable Santa hats the last couple of years for the bazaar and I somehow ended up with three of them. I wasn't sure what I would do with them, I just knew they were adorable.
So this year we went from a seven foot Christmas tree to a nine foot Christmas tree which created a 'happy accident', I needed more ornaments. I decided to tuck the hats into some holes and loved how they looked.
I have also been whining that my sewing machine died on me last spring. I was able to get a new one on Cyber Monday for a REALLY great price. (Kind of a little reward to myself for working so hard on the craft bazaar).
I plan on making a few more Santa hats for the tree to fill in some of those holes.
Thanks Christine for the inspiration.(Be sure and check out her adorable blog that has lots of cute ideas she has made with fabric. She is quite the seamstress and crafter)
