T-shirts to Fun Fall Hat

I might be in danger of going overboard with all the things I've now made out of old t-shirts...but I just can't help myself. Fabric is usually expensive...rarely soft and oh yeah, requires a trip to the store to purchase. Since my sewing inspiration usually strikes at nap time, it's SO much more convenient to reach into my stash of well-loved but no longer worn t-shirts and pull out some pre-washed, pre-loved and totally FREE fabric.

My last t-shirt project was this dress, which I found online at Dana's site MADE. And once upon a time I made this sweet newborn gown for my niece out of an old tee. This project for the Squirt was made using a pattern and tutorial I found at I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar. She has the BEST boy projects and her creativity blows me away.

I've still got a bit of embellishing to do (couldn't find an embroidery needle and was nap time) but my client was pleased nonetheless. With cooler weather around the corner (a girl can dream right?) I can't wait to put it to use!

  4. Katie,
    I love this hat! Looks like one Eli loves wearing it. I wish Grandma Belle was alive to see your projects with fabric. She made lots of crazy quilts out of old worn and outdated clothes.
    Love, Gigi

  5. Just adorable, I love the t-shirt layered look, and your model is pretty darn sweet! Oh yeah, I always love ear flaps! Thanks for showing off!


  6. Oh my goodness, this is the cutest thing EVER!!!! I love that you got the "08" to show. I think that is pretty cool. You have to teach me!
