Make Your Own Fabric Beanies !
These fabric beanies are so easy to make !
The blue one is the one I made for my son Jack a few years ago, its made from recycled heavy duty rugby knit fabric. The pink one I made yesterday its made from windcheater fabric, which we will give to a little friend of ours for her birthday present. I'm also making another one for Jack that will be a little bigger with the same blue fabric. I'm in the process of making a tutorial, if you would like to make one. I'll also be making a few for my older sons, one is a bricklayer and these mornings now are pretty chilly. So I'm sure they will appreciate a few each as well. They can be made from any fabric that has a little stretch in it, even t-shirt fabric could be used as the hat is double thickness and you could double that again . Could be a good way to reuse any old t-shirts or windcheaters as well. I will post the tutorial as soon as completed. I just remembered I made Jack a little white one when he was a baby, I think I still have it , he looked so gorgeous in it.
Here is the link to the beanie tutorial I have done to show you all how easy they are to make http://simpleliving-sherrie.blogspot.com/2011/06/tutorial-to-make-fabric-beanies.html
