I should probably just warn you now - there's going to be a whole lot of deja vu going on in this blog in the next couple of weeks. I don't know if my brain is just not working properly or if I'm just drawn to the comfort of objects that I've already made, but I can't stop making things for a second, third or even fourth time.
My excuse in this case is that the first time I made the Cozy Winter Hood, I actually made it for someone else's little one. This one, however, will be for our little one-to-be.
Again, I made the smallest size - which supposedly is made to fit a newborn to sixth month old - but again it came out big enough that it fits on O's head. Oh well. Maybe the baby will get many years of use out of it.
The outside is made from some uncut corduroy and the inside is some super-soft fleece purchased as the ridiculously fun Seattle Outdoor Fabric store (where you can buy neoprene and Goretex and all sorts of other awesome things). I didn't have matching ribbons on hand so I just made two fabric ties from the uncut corduroy. They're a little stiffer than ribbon would be but I suppose that they get the job done.
And in the end, that's all that I really care about.
