sytyc hats

When Heidi started competing last season on So You Think You're Crafty, I sort of got hooked.  I started looking back through all the past tutorials, and decided I wanted to make the Little Boy Hats by Cheri from season 4.

I've been trying lately to dejunk and get rid of the clutter, so except for a few t-shirts, I was fresh out of old clothes to cut to shreds and use for hats.  I didn't see why I couldn't use the stretch knit and ribbed knit I had left over from other projects, though.

I ended up making one for each of my kids, and in order to avoid having to make my own biased tape, I made one hat for each kid out of the knit, and another hat out of old t-shirts for a lining.  That way, I sewed the two together, flipped them right side out, and top stitched the bottom edge.

Pink lining for Rora:

Navy blue for the boys:

And we're all smiles in our hats!!
