Favourite Hat

I made this babies hat some time ago and gave it away to a photographer who takes photos of babies and children. Of course it would not be practical for every day wear! I was inspired by the greek God Hermes who had wings on his heels.
It is a very simple shape but was a bit tricky to get the "wings" shaped and attached. The finishing touch was to needle felt around the edges with a fluffy yarn.
