It took me all of five minutes to make Katie a fleece hat today. She keeps losing and misplacing (yes, I said SHE does!) all of her hats, and baby hats are really expensive! So when I was going through my "to upcycle" trashbag of clothing and found a super soft fleece sweater that I knew would be used in some way for Katie, I decided to start it off with making her a hat. I lobbed off half of one sleeve, made sure the hemmed side fit her head, then tied a knot in it about two inches from the unhemmed side. Once the knot was really tight, I put a few stitches in, then took a scissors and chunky frayed the ends so it would look like a fleece pom pom on top. That was it!
Here's K.B. modeling it:
