Upcycled: Puppy Hat (Free Pattern Template)

My latest...a puppy hat.

 I found this "Lake George" hat at a thrift shop for a quarter.  The "Lake George" is just stamped on and was peeling a bit.  The hat is of great construction, but it was turned into a cheesy souvenir. So...I set to work, brainstorming how I could cover that "Lake George" without creating a tacky hat.
I created a template to machine applique. I embroidered the eyes, added a button nose. It's similar in design to my puppy crinkle toy. If you'd like to make one, here's the pattern.

I must say, my little guy loves it.  And insists on wearing it all the time.  Makes my heart melt!

We were set to go on an adventure this week.  We told him to get ready.  He immediately grabbed his puppy hat, I helped him with his mama made coat.  He then said "Bucket truck".  He needed to pack up, just like his mama.  He stuffed his bucket full of matchbox cars...
and then sat on this stool, waiting patiently for mama and dada.
I am enjoying these days when he tolerates his mama dressing him up in homemade love!
