All Dressed Up

A few months back, Raegan picked out a hat she wanted for winter. It was $12, and while it was cute, it was simply not in my frugal budget. I did keep it in mind, and watched for it to go on sale, but it was also at a store not near us.

A few weeks ago, I found the same hat design without embellishment at Family Dollar for just $4. Well, $4 I can do. I found one in black, to match her jacket, and picked it up. I had, at the time, intended for it to just be a plain winter hat that she would get for Christmas.

Fast forward a few days later, and I bought a container of buttons. One of the buttons was a large black faceted button. It was just perfect to embellish the hat, but there was only 1. I did some button digging, but nothing else was really dressy enough.

I finally sorted through my beads, and pulled out a lot of clear faceted beads to use. I hand stitched everything to the hat. I can't wait to see if she likes it! It's a cute, somewhat dressy looking hat now!
