a simple polar fleece hats to keep you warm!
Materials List

Polar fleece (as many colors as you like)

Sewing machine

Scissors

Marker

Yardstick or ruler

How to
Step 1

Lay the yard stick or ruler on the polar fleece. Measure a piece of polar fleece that is 24 inches by 12 inches and use the marker to mark the correct dimensions. Cut along the marker lines.

Step 2
Fold the piece of fleece in half so you end up with a square shape.
Step 3
Use your sewing machine to sew two of the ends. Make sure to leave one end unsewn for the head to fit.
Step 4
You should have a kind of pocket, with three closed ends and one open end.
Step 5
The base for the hat is complete, and now it's time to decorate. Cut strips of polar fleece in the same or different colors and patterns. I recommend cutting 6-inch strips that are about 1 inch wide.
Step 6
Pinch two little ears at the top of the hat and tie a strip around each!
Step 7
You can also fold up the bottom of your hat and use scissors to cut horizontal slits across the bottom.
Step 8
Be sure to cut all the way through both layers of the folded hat.
Step 9
String your fleece strips half way through each hole.
Step 10
Tie a knot and you've got a fantastic warm fuzzy hat!
Step 11
You can also make a puff ball at the top instead of ears by pinching the top of the hat together and tying a number of fleece strips around it.
