Hat turned into purse

So much for the winter storm warning. It rained most of the day by noon we got some snow but it stopped by 3. Nothing stuck…too wet for it.

On to my disaster of a hat project. I started the hat yesterday and finished it today. I checked my gauge before I started but I still ended up with a hat (meant for a toddler) that was actually too large for my head. I have no idea what happened the measurements are all correct but the hat is just way too big. So not wanting to waste any yarn I turned into a purse as you can see:

I added a 3 dimensional flower applique to kind of spice it up. I think it would make a cute Spring bag to collect Easter Eggs or to hold library books.
I am kind of disappointed in the hat instructions but I am going to give it another go with a different type of yarn and see if that works. I will be posting the above bag on my Etsy and Weebly sites so if interested check those out.

I'd love to hear what you think!
