It is now starting to get cooler here and soon for a short time it will be COLD. There will be a need to break out the winter coats along with hats and gloves. I really don't like spending $5-$10 on a winter hat we I know I can make it for pennies. So I set out to the thrift store $1 bin to find the perfect candidate for hats for the kids. I hit the jackpot! The bin had sweaters and jeans. I grabbed up all the jeans for another jeans quilt ( for the hubby this time), a white leather jacket and black leather skirt (for another project), a wool skirt, and a few sweaters for hats. All of this for $1....SCORE!!!!
Here's what I started with.
The top is a little stretched out but the bottom is perfect for a hat!
Cut 2 from the bottom of the sweater.
Fold the piece in half and sew the cut edge.
Repeat with the other piece.
Lay the pieces on top of each other right sides together. Sew.
That's it. See how simple?!
For Aiyanna's hat I used a sweater that had a decorative edge. I love this because I can add a hair bow or flower clip to it.
Or it can just be worn as is and still be pretty and girly.
Here's the pattern if you need it!
