Putting the Hat and Scarf together

Find the middle of the scarf and row 1 of hat and pin together.

Take a darning needle and sew the hat and scarf together.


Optional: Make pom poms and sew them to each of the ends of the scarf. I made four pom pom’s and put two on each side.

Doing crafts was just a hobby, then became my occupation, and now it has become a way for me to leave a legacy behind for my children and future grand children to remember me by.
