1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Velcro on Crocheted Hat on: December 05, 2009 09:20:05 PM
Hello everyone! I have a bit of a design problem I hope you guys can help me out with.

I have some plain hats I've crocheted that I don't know what to do with. So I thought I would put some patches on the hats. Normal, right? Here's where it gets tricky...

Instead of regular iron-on patches, I want to make and use shrinky dink patches so they can be interchangeable. The best method I can think of to do this would be to use velcro on the front of the hat and on the back of the shrinky dink patch.

Well my options are either iron-on velcro-which is best for the yarn and not for plastic-or heavy duty velcro for buttetin boards and garage tool hooks-which is best for the shrinky dink and not for the yarn.

Part of me wants to just sew a square of the heavy duty yarn onto the yarn of the hat (4 corner style) and use it as normal on the shrinky dink and be down with it. Another part of me wants to try and use the iron on velcro on the shrinky dink but I have a feeling it will melt it.

Aargh! I have no idea what to do and it's driving me crazy!

Any ideas?

This is a hat I made for my brother Cameron. He's 9 and loves Pokemon. So he asked me to crochet him a Master Ball hat. For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, (and I had to refresh my memory since it's been, oh, years, since I've watched Pokemon religiously) a Master Ball is the Poke ball with the ability to capture any Pokemon without fail. In the original series you could only have one, but I think that's changed since I've watched the show.

Anyway, the entire hat is crocheted with the top bubbles stuffed with cotton stuffing and sewn to the top. The circle on the front is made separately then sewn to the front. I had found a site with patterns for making block letters, but they didn't work out too well-so I made a long chain, single crocheted once down, then shaped it into an "M" and sewed it to the top center. I was able to make the whole thing in 1 night-I think about 1-2 hours was the longest I worked. I did the "M" the next day though, but that's didn't take but 5 minutes to do.

Here's what it ended up looking like. I think it's pretty close to the original with what I had to work with.

Here is the inset of the "M"

I really hope he likes it!
