Wasqually Wabbit!

His Mommy took this picture this morning. He's a fan of the hat & gloves!

"Be vewy vewy quiet......we're huntin' wabbits" This fun fleece hat and mittens totally remind me of Elmer Fudd from the old Bugs Bunny cartoons!  I made these this morning from McCalls pattern #M5253. I followed the pattern pretty much "as is" except that I fully lined the inside of the hat. I wanted it to be nice and soft and very warm on his little head :) My "so so big" grandson David (almost 3 years old) is traveling with his parents to Michigan next week to visit his dad's side of the family. His Grandpa Dave (whom he is named after) is a very accomplished hunter. So I thought it would be cute if David had this cute hunting inspired hat. David himself is quite the animal lover. The only reason he would hunt for anything would be to pet it :) He loves "bumbies" (his word for rabbits). And he's in luck because at his Nana Sherry's farm a litter of "bumbies" has recently been born! This is going to be such a wonderful time for the Michigan side of the family to spend some time with David. I know that David is going to be so excited and so full of stories to tell me when he comes home from his big adventure. I'm going to miss them all like crazy, but the fact that they ( and our son's family as well ) call California home is one of our biggest blessings.


  1. makes me wanna go with him to see how his grandpa reacts! awesome job!

  2. Oh, that's so funny. I've got one who loves hats and gloves too.
