Happy Birthday to ME!!! 
I am so excited to have Annie of Wattlebird here to celebrate. I truly think she is amazing and I am so happy that she is with us to share a fun DIY project with us! 


Hiya Luvs! I'm Annie from the blog Wattlebird, and I'm so happy Gina is letting me share a crafty project on her blog as part of her birthday celebration! If you've been to my shop, you know I make silly hats for silly people. I've been creating lots of new designs lately, and the one I'm sharing with you today is my new favorite - a hamburger!

If you can knit and sew, it's pretty easy to make. Here's what you need:

  • light tan, dark brown, and white yarn
  • red, yellow, and green felt
  • thread

Using whatever basic hat knitting pattern you'd like, start with the light tan yarn and knit about 3/4 of an inch, then switch to dark brown for about 2 inches, and back to light tan for the rest of the hat.

This is the fun part. Cut the felt into random shapes. I crinkled the green pieces to make them wrinkly so they'd look more like lettuce, and I made sure to include the corners on the yellow felt so that it would look more like cheese. You can pretty much put whatever you want on your burger. Then stitch all the pieces around the top of the dark brown yarn strip.

Cut the white yarn into a bunch of 2 inch strands. Tie them onto the top of the hat and cut away the excess so that it looks like sesame seeds.

That's it! If you don't feel like making it yourself, it will be available shortly in my shop, or you can email me at wattlebirddesigns AT gmail DOT com for a custom order. And if you feel so inclined, stop by my blog and say hi! I'd love to "meet" you!

Happy birthday, Gina! {{hugs}}

Such a fun hat - I wish I knew how to knit! But I bet I could embellish a store-bought hat the same way. Or just learn to knit. ;)
