Cheri's Upcycled T-shirt hats seem to be spreading through blogland like wildfire. Her versions are so cute and I absolutely love all of the little details that she added. When I saw her post I knew that I had to try it out.
So here is my attempt at making the upcycled t-shirt hat. I think that it turned out fairly well. I wanted to make it to go along with his new raglan sleeve shirt. I didn't zig zag all of the edges like Cheri, and I don't miss it all that much. I used knit ribbing instead of t-shirt "tape". It seemed to adjust to the curves well.
I was really pleased that Clark left his hat on as long as he did. Normally they are ripped off and thrown to the ground in three seconds flat. Yesterday he wore it the entire time we were in the post office.
After making Clark's hat I started wishing that I had one of my very own. So I repurposed a couple of shirts and made one for myself. I used this covered button tutorial from No Big Dill. For my hat I cut down on the length of the ear flaps (I could have cut them down much more). My hat strips were about 21" long and the domed piece was 4 1/2" tall, and the middle section was about 21/2" tall. Visit Cheri at I am Momma Hear Me Roar for her full tutorial.
