How to make a Newborn Baby hat

I can't believe that my pregnancy is half way over! I need to start thinking about newborn clothes and hats. Today I put together a pattern, tutorial and video of how to make a newborn baby hat. I love it! My girlfriend is coming over tomorrow with her brand new sweetheart so that I can model the hat. I can't wait! I have been recycling t-shirts like a crazy person and this is the perfect way to do it!

Enjoy this free tutorial on how to make a newborn beanie hat.

Recycle a t-shirt into a baby shirt

It's so close to summer. My Elijah has been proving to be a terror on his wardrobe. This child wants to play hard so I need to make him some clothes that won't break my heart if he ruins them.

My inner "freak out" is usually associated with expensive clothing, or clothes that take me a while to make. So I am combating that by making him shorts and cut offs out of t-shirts! In fact, I found a new way to whip out my baby cut off t-shirt even faster by recycling the binding of the existing t-shirt. I even made a video for you. :)

**Please know that my tutorial in the baby cut off tank top pattern DOES show you how to properly attach binding to the neckline, as well as finish any edges. This video is simply a pattern adaption to whip out my sweetheart some play clothes.
