Get out some old sweaters. Or thrifted sweaters.
Using an existing hat, line up the bottom with the bottom edge of the sweater.
Using a fabric marker (or chalk, or sharpie work too). Trace around the hat, adding 2-3 inches on the top for a 'slouchy' effect. Also add about 1/2 inch all around for seam allowance.
Cut it out.
Place the two pieces with the right sides facing in. Pin around the edges (not the bottom).
Now sew around the edge with a small zigzag stitch, to allow some stretch. You can add a larger zigzag stitch closer to the edge to prevent it from fraying.
Flip it right side out and it's ready to wear.
Pretty cute, huh?
I'm also loving that my boys are old enough to sit through a mini photo shoot without complaint!
Have fun! And if you want your own slouchy hat, check out this tutorial.
