Fleece hat - McCall's 4234. I need to make a few modifications and will make another, but overall, I am pretty happy with it. And Little Boy likes wearing it - which is the important thing! His favorite winter hat got misplaced (now found, phew) so I quickly had to make him this one...

In case you are wondering about my future list of changes... next time I will TRIM the inside seam of the band so it isn't so bulky and add a row of topstitching ... also - the band goes up in the back - leaving the neck exposed, so I will bring that down. And the front of the band is a bit low - so will make that go a tiny bit higher to keep it out of the eyes. The bottom could be snugger to go around the ears better (we have lots of wind on the shore) so I will just cut the bottom a bit smaller next time around but leave the top the same so the crown will still fit perfectly. AND - this is the big thing here - there are no tassles at the top - got to add those!!! See, just a few little changes and it will be perfect!

The beach looked like this yesterday... we actually like the beach in the winter - we never have trouble getting front row parking, LOL. And yes, I do keep beach toys in the back of my car... year round.

I've got to say - I LOVE being able to sew my son clothing in BRIGHT colors - makes him easy to spot! He has matching orange/yellow pants... and now he wants a vest too. We had some people in this week from NY and they were oohing and ahhing over his orange/yellow pants with big square pockets - they swore up and down that I could sell them in Manhattan. Who knew my son was so stylish!!!
