Ie shut on me so this is my second try. The hat came out too small and you can tell in one of the pictures where its not even on the top of my head lol. that will teach me for not measuring! One of my daughters will be happy though~!
I embroidered each side piece with a brain outline, lined each side, inserted straps , pinked the edges and then punched holes along the upper edges through all the layers and looped fleece strips through them.
Please excuse my appearance. I was so delighted to be the only "model" awake that i had to make a dumb face( on purpose)
idea came from http://www.footballfanatics.com/COLLEGE_Michigan_Wolverines_Hats/adidas_Michigan_Wolverines_Youth_Navy_Blue_Mohawk_Knit_Beanie
