While I was visiting my family for Christmas I decided to cannibalize the leftover fleece from the presents I made last year (adult footie pajamas haha) and put it to good use. I had heard about a charity called Kaps for Kendall, which provides hats to kids and adults that have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, and thought this was the perfect thing!

My mother had children's hat patterns stockpiled from our childhood so I found a variety of different styles and used as much of the fabric as possible. I honestly don't think I've ever made anything child size before so I think they worked out pretty good Smiley

Inspiration without application is moot.

Thanks! If I'm honest I much rather love making things for other people (especially ones that really deserve it and don't expect it) than for myself Smiley I hope I can be involved with more things like this in the future.
