These are a great way to use up little bits and pieces of scraps. I decided to make mine with a mini Courthouse block (not surprising considering I’ve made so many lately…) and a garden gnome, since Katie is so fond of them. It’s actually quite different then I originally envisioned, but I had to change plans as I went. This project was a definite learning experience. (And in case anyone is wondering, yes, the hat is made of some felted knitting. That was the first knitting I had done all month. It’s Malabrigo but SHHHH! Don’t tell the bat squad, OK?)
Binding something this small proved to be a bit tricky, but thanks to this tutorial, I made it through OK.
