Hi, This is my first post, just wondering what everyone thinks ! After shrinking a wool sweater I decided to turn it into something else, so'oooo I proceeded to chop up a felt robe and set out to make this crazy bomber hat for my daughter. She actually decided she liked the look of  the inside better so she had been wearing it inside out !  I also made one with matching gloves for my other daughter so I will have to get that one up too ! Its funny because when I first finished the first one, I forgot to put the bill on it so it looked like a helmet !!!!
What do you think ?

Wow ! Thanks so much for the compliment, I thought maybe it was corny and my kids were just humoring me and taking them off as soon as they left the house ! Thanks again !

I, too, love the hat.  Did you use the threadbanger tutorial?  If not, would that yield the same results?  Because, I love this hat.

I just watched the tutorial over at Threadbangers and I'm planning to get all over this one.  I shall call it my "Sh*tter's full" hat in honor of Cousin Eddie!

BRILLIANT! Next time I shrink a sweater, I'll keep the hat idea in mind. Cheesy -x-

That's all there is and there ain't no more....
