a hat for Levi

Remember this cute knit hat from last winter?

I love it.
It was a handmade gift.
But now it is too small for Mr. Levi's head.

So, I am on the hunt for a new hat for Levi.
His head has grown just a little. :o)
Not that it is cold is just beginning to feel a little fall-ish.
But soon I will need to help Mr. Levi keep his head warm.
I love this one from Old Navy.
They used to have it in blue too.
But I can't find it on-line or in the stores anymore in the right size.

So, I am turning to you for help.
Where can I find a cute beanie for Levi?
I would love to find a handmade one.
Any Etsy store recommendations?

This one is my fav! I have bought at least 4 for my daughter and a newborn one for the newest. You can customize them if you don't see the color combos you like. I bought my nephews some and they were super cute. She does great work and is super quick. Check her out.

I think you probably have plenty of suggestions...but I love this one :)

Send her a pic of Levi in it (since you take such great pics) and you'll get a discount on future purchases.

Here is my son in his hat from last year on her Etsy site

I had a knit hat from baby gap that I loved b/c it was lined for extra warmth. Maybe some of the handmade ones are lined...but I haven't seen any.

Jess I read this post and laughed because I knew that people would not be able to resist offering to make your gorgeous Levi a hat - and looking through these comments I was right!

I would love to add my offer to the earlier ones but there's only so many hats a little fella needs!

Looking forward to seeing his new duds!

Try Nora & Finn. They have the cutest hats, including some monkey hats that are adorable if you're not set on a beanie!
