I love making hats. Before I learned how to sew, I would always knit people hats. Baby/Kids hats were my favorite to make since you can get super creative and crazy (plus smaller hats = less time). After discovering sewing, and specifically sewing fleece – my hat game stepped up to whole new level. I made dinosaur hats, kitty hats, and am working on some ninja turtle hats for all the kids. I noticed some of the fleece hats stretched more than others and then I realized that fleece stretches only in one direction! So take note – when making hats with fleece, make sure you cut the fleece with the fabric stretching horizontally (around the head) vs. vertically.
and that’s my tip for today.
