Military Style Cap (finished)

Alllllrighty then. Sewing hats. 1 part fun: 1 part frustration.

My favorite thing about this hat (besides the cutie underneath), is that it was made from a pair of my husband's shorts that had a hole and could no longer be worn by him. Enter the fabric recycling fairy (aka me). It's a disease really, because now I can't throw anything out!

Just think, where can you get one-of-a-kind fabric for your projects for FREE?? yep, your closet. Those clothes that you used to love but don't anymore can become the accessories that your kids will love today!

Really, that's the only downside, there isn't usually a lot of fabric to salvage, but if you can get enough, it's pretty darn cool. Now if only I could get him to keep it on!

I'm not in love with the size of the bill, but hey--he's young--he can get away with it, right?

Sorry about the blurry pic, but I wanted you to see the front

Pattern: Military Style Cap from Amy Butler's little stitches for little ones

(The bill is rather large, but yes, he can get away with it.)
