CUTE SANTA HATS

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)

So cute!! I think I love the polka dot one the best. And I think even I could handle this project. Maybe I'll work on them for next year.

DEAR CONNIE,
CONGRATS ON YOUR NEW SEWING MACHINE. I HAVE ASKED MY PARENTS FOR A SEWING MACHINE FOR CHRISTMAS...THEN BEGINS MY JOURNEY TO LEARN TO SEW.
THESE HATS ARE SO VERY CUTE...CUTE...CUTE
I LOVE THE POLK-A-DOT ONE AND TO PUT THEM ON THE TREE IS JUST AWESOME...IF YOU HAD A BIGGER ONE THAT WAS SEWN FROM MATERIAL OF EACH HAT ON THE TREE...YOU COULD USE IT AS A TREE TOPPER.
THANKS FOR SHOWING US THESE DARLING HATS.
HUGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE
