It may sound silly, but since all three of my kids have been/will be “surprise” genders, it’s really fun to put them in their first pink or blue outfit. My first two were born in the hospital, so they received a cute little pink or blue hat to wear, which I saved in their memory boxes. This baby will be born at home, but I still really wanted a cute pink or blue hat! Oh and uhh…have I mentioned how much I love Etsy?
After sifting through 8 jillion baby hats (which OMG, be still my wallet, you could spend a fortune on hats alone!) I found Carole’s Cozy Comforts. Oh dear, you have to look at some of her baby hats. Acorn hats, pumpkin hats, apples, tomatoes and blueberries? So cute!!
A few days after my hat hunt, I had a dream that a friend and I were at the craft store trying to learn how to knit baby hats, ha ha!!
As cute as all the pom pom hats and elf hats and everything else are, I just wanted a basic, plain old hat in pink and blue. I found it in the Basic Baby Hat in Light Blue and the Basic Baby Hat in Light Pink. You can get a hat in pretty much any size you want, I of course chose the newborn!
They are machine washable and dryable, though it’s recommended that you hand wash them and lay them flat to dry. They are made from 100% acrylic yarn and are stretchy to fit nicely and comfortably. They were $10 each, which I think is fair considering how well made they are!
It’s a little big for my model, but hopefully it will fit a baby better, tee-hee!
