My Mom made these adorable pumpkin hats for James and Maddie. . . . aren't they cute? She popped them in the mail and then she unexpectedly popped herself on a plane to fly out to California to attend my Grandmother's (on my dad's side) memorial service. She almost beat the hats here!
Are these not the cutest hats? The kiddos love them and are wearing them everywhere. Luckily, we have had 10 days of rain so it has been hat wearing weather!
The only drawback to the matching hats is that we are getting even more "are they twins" questions.
My Mom used this pattern. She altered it a bit to make it big enough for toddler heads . . . and left off the leaves in the interest of saving some time. Both Ed and I agree we like my Mom's version better! I am not a crocheter, but I love to send my Mom patterns of things I want her to make for the kids (aren't I sweet?), do you have any fun patterns you want to share?
