    Hi it’s Megan from Brassy Apple!  I have passion for sewing, fashion, DIY’ing, upcycling, refashioning, design and attempting to be fun and cool mom! You can catch Season 1 of my web TV show – Refashion it here!

    A fun way to add some personality to your kids winter hats is to embellish them! Create a snowman hat for your little cuties!

    DIY snowman hat


    White knit hat (I used a one size fits all from walmart for $1.50)

    orange felt

    Black buttons (enough for eyes and a smile) Can use different sizes if you want


    Black thread and sewing needle

    Sewing machine with orange thread

    straight pins

    fabric marker (optional)

    Step 1: Lay your hat flat and begin arranging the buttons as eyes and a smile. Play around with the scale of the buttons seeing where you like larger vs. smaller ones and mix of sizes if you want. I sometimes like to offset the eyes on an angle a bit.

    Step 2: Cut a triangle from the orange felt about 4 inches long (my base was just under 2 inches wide). Place it on the hat and see of the scale is to your liking. If not, trim a little on the sides you’d like shorter or not as wide.


    Step 3: Pin the carrot nose into place. If you’d like, use a fabric marker to mark where the button placement was and move the buttons off. Using your sewing machine, attach the carrot nose to the hat.

     Step 4: With a hand sewing needle and black thread sew on the button eyes and smile. And you are DONE!

    A cutie hat that is perfect for all winter long after the Christmas Season has ended. pssst….I bet you have most of the supplies on hand too except the white hat so it’s a great inexpensive gift too!

      This is a portal which is accessed by the prrofessionals and prooducers andd hiring agencies.
      com is one site where users can find all Bollywood Events, Bollywood Parties, Music Launch, Bollywood trailers, music videos, old and
      latest songs, and they can watch them in high definition for
      free. Dandekar has made a bizarre claim tto run without clothes when Lokpal Billl
      is passed.

      Heya! I know this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
      Does operating a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work?
      I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal daily.
      I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

      Excellent way of telling, and nice post to obtain
      facts about my presentation subject, which i am going to convey
      in college.

      More CFM is directly proportional to the cool air.
      Therefore, environment conscious people often encourage the use of ceiling
      fans with lights. These use incandescent bulbs for a soft warm light.

      I don't even know how I finished up right here, but I thought this put up was once great. I don't recognise who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you aren't already. Cheers!
