Needle and thread
Buttons, appliqués, or felt pieces for decoration
1 yard decorative cord

in size to the recipient.) Now cut a piece of fleece thats 16 inches
wide and as long as the measurement you took plus 2 inches.
2. Fold the fleece in half, right side in so the
16-inch edges match up. Sew a 1/2-inch-wide seam along this edge,
stopping 5 inches from the bottom. Just below the last stitch, make
a 1/2-inch cut in from the side. Turn the material right side out.
Now sew a seam along the last 5 inches of unsewn fleece.
3. Roll the bottom of the hat up two turns, so
the cuff conceals the bottom part of the seam. To keep the cuff
from unrolling, sew on a decorative button, an appliqué,
or a felt cutout.
4. Finally, gather the top 3 inches of the hat
and tie a colorful cord around it. You can also cut fringes in this
top part for a cute style!

us want to bundle up in the softest, most luxurious fabrics.
