I made this upcycled slouchy beanie in October and put it in the “post-partum post queue” and now looking at the photos is making me sad! Cohen looks like such a baby in these. It’s funny how having a new baby will make your toddler seem like a five year old!
Anyways, he wears this hat very rarely because he always pulls it off. But if it’s cold enough he’ll keep it on. It’s super easy to make and there is a free pattern piece, too! I used an old tshirt and an old sweater to make two hats. One has a big tshirt pom!
*old tshirt, sweater or 1/3 yard knit fabric
*free slouchy beanie pattern piece
Cut out two layers of the pattern piece. Line the bottom up with the hem of your old shirt.
Pin together with right sides together and sew the curved edge.
To make the pom for the top, cut the rest of your shirt or sweater into 1/2″ strips.
Wrap the strips around something sturdy, such as a piece of cardboard. Then tie them in the middle.
Cut the ends and hand stitch the pom to the top of your beanie.
Stop growing baby boy!
See you later for a giveaway!!
