Minnie Mouse Hat Crochet Pattern

image

It’s my baby girl’s first Halloween.  Yay! I guess there’s no shortage of adorable costumes in store, but this is probably the only year of my life (and hers) that I can dedicate all my time to making everything special for her.  Once I’m back to work, I’ll  never have this kind of time.

So, I made her a Minnie Mouse outfit after she went to bed.  I didn’t like the hat patterns I found online, so I thought I’d share the one I made.  It’s super easy.  Took me about an hour. Enjoy!
