When the cold wind blows – its time to wear a hat…but not a boring hat!
The Stash contains small pieces of fleece left over from other projects.
After a web search for ideas, these animal hats were sewn.
Many years ago I made dinosaur hats, jester hats and headbands from fleece – and the pattern was still in the Pattern Stash!
The eyes on the Owl Hat were from a pattern used to make Owl Placemats: Who’s Place by Susie C Shore Designs.
The ears and beaks were simple 90 degree triangles.
There is also a Squid Hat – complete with tentacles for ties, but it was claimed before a photo could be taken.
A note on sewing fleece: My sewing machine had difficulty sewing the fleece as it tends to dull needles very quickly. Luckily, there is also a Needle Stash. It took 6 needles to sew the three hats!
So cute! I’m now dying to see that squid hat… Brilliant idea!
