I finally did a little sewing after months of having my machine covered up. It was to fulfill a promise I made in the fall to my friend, Jen. I told her I'd make her a fleece frog hat. She loves frogs, and she has to stand out to watch her students at recess regardless of the weather, so of course she needed a fleecy froggy hat!
I searched Google and found this great tutorial at Tracy's Treasury. Somehow, my hat turned out a bit puffier than Tracy's, most likely due to my lack of sewing lately - how quickly my skills weaken. I still think the hat is super cute and the puffiness adds even more character.
I had two more requests for this hat while I was sewing it...from my two little ones, of course! So, I'll get some more practice to sharpen my sewing skills again.
