Being an Aunt of two other nieces, it has always bothered me that both boys and girls get the same hat in the hospital. Yes, these are the things I worry about. Anyway, I decided that my niece needed a hat that would differentiate herself from the newborn boys. I had seen it done before, but needed to find out how to make one of those adorable bow hats!
A quick google search brought me to this tutorial and while I was waiting for Sadie to make her grand entrance, I decided to make her a few (with my own twist, of course).
All you need is 3 of those little knit hats the hospital provides and a pair of scissors.
- Cut the bands off two of the three hats and set aside.
- Take the hat you haven't cut yet and fold it up to make a thicker band than the ones you just cut off.
- Make slits about an inch apart for the bands to go through. I stretched one of the cut bands to be a little longer than the other and stacked the smaller one on top of the larger one.
- Thread it through the two slits you just made and Voila! You have a perfect double bow newborn hat! It's that simple!
I hope this comes in handy if you know any sweet baby girls being born anytime soon.
