I love halloween! It's such a strange and wonderful day. You can dress up like anything from something scary like a ghost or a witch to something sweet like a pumpkin or this adorable little bunny.
When I was young I took Halloween very seriously. I would come up with an idea and my mom and I would go to the fabric store and pick out some fantastic fabric. One year I was a mermaid and we puffy painted all of my lycra scales individually and went to the fish market to buy big scallop shells for my top. Another time,I was a black cat and the costume was made out of the softest black cotton velvet. My favorite part of that costume was the hat. It was lined with satin and it had a big pink bow. I wore it long after halloween and I bet it's still in my parents attic somewhere.
Inspired by that cat hat I decided to make this sweet little bunny hat for a Halloween project. It's designed to fit a three year old but the pattern could easily be blown up or shrunk to fit many different sizes. It's made from wool but lined in ultra soft Moda Muslin so it won't itch! I used the Mary Flanagan Felted Wool but it would work beautifully in our brand new (and organic!) Wool Melton Fat Quarters or Wollfilz Wool Felt as well.
