We were back to school for a week.....and then BAM!!!!! Snowed in for a week (Middle TN started with ice...about 2 inches of it....then we received about 4 or 5 inches of snow on top!). I realized I did not have a good winter hat so I could go outside with my kids. Hats are an issue with me because I have a HUGE head. No really...I have to buy my hats at www.bigheadcaps.com (awesome company based here in Middle TN!). I used an old sweatshirt to create a hat.
I used the waist band area for the bottom part of my hat. I folded it up once to make it thicker over the ears, and then sewed in an extra layer of sweatshirt material so it was triple thick! I love a "elf" hat style because my students crack up (I finger knitted one years ago that I would wear to bus duty, but don't know what happened to it?!?).
