Today I’m showing you the cutest Dino-mite hat!
Ayumi wrote that is project was a quick project and that’s no lie! Also I love that the book gives your a difficulty level:
I was planning to make one to fit my daughter’s head but instead we made a dino-mite hat for her teddy bear:
The one thing I did do differently from the book is with the spikes. Instead of pivoting, I just went the end. And then I did the same for the opposite side. The main reason is you’ll be trimming it anyway.
I also reused the ribbon that tied the fabric bundles as the ribbon for the hat:
Overall, this project is super adorable and I’m kind of proud of myself that I could do it. . . I know that sounds lame but this is in the world of sewing clothes – and I don’t ever sew clothes (cause I suck ass at it).
