Hat from and old sweater.

I made this hat from an old sweater. Here is the instructional video link from Threadbanger. Tracing the brim took me a few tries. This hat looked very masculine before I appliqued the flower. It's a great project for guys. (see video) To make the flower I cut out petal shapes from extra sweater fabric and sewed some scraps into a ball shape for the center.
Threadbanger is a great site. They show you how to refashion old clothes into new clothes. It's definately worth checking out.
