Earflap Beanies

There are so many
earflap beanies on etsy.
I've been eyeing them for a long time and
waiting for a free second to get out my crochet hook
and give one a try.
But my crocheting skills are well very amateur
and I knew it would probably take me forever and a day to crochet them
so I grabbed some old t shirts from my stash
went to my sewing machine (before it breaking)
and whipped up some cotton beanies instead.

a girly ruffley version for Mackenzie

with some flowers

and braided ties

My husband thinks it looks like a bonnet
but whatever.

And a manly version for Wesley

or an aviator looking hat according to my husband

Lightweight and perfect for an after dinner stroll in Spring.

Tutorial to come...hopefully tomorrow :)

Those are WAY cute! And probably so comfy too to wear! I'll be checking back for the tutorial :).
