Christmas Hats
I made these for my cousins (they're all either 16 or 17, I don't remember). As expected, the adults were more impressed than they were.

Thanks! I'm used to that reaction. I've been making presents for them on and off for years. These were the cheapest I can remember, though! I used Wool-Ease, so it was really inexpensive. Last year, I did necklaces with wire and glass beads.

Those are really nice! sometimes younger people dont realize that stuff that is made can be better/more thoughtful wtc. than gifts that are bought.

The pattern is here. I used Lion Brand Wool-ease, so it was cheap, too!
