Upcycled Winter Hats

October is just around the corner, which means that the weather is getting a little cooler. Soon it'll be time to pull out all the winter gear - mitts, boots, coats ...

and hats!

I bet there will be a lot of mamas out there who discover that the stockpile of winter things has dwindled or been grown out of over summer. So Tawny Bee is going to help.

I've come up with the cutest upcycled winter hat design for children from 6 months to 5 years of age.

I have reversible ones. (Reversible Goldish and Checkers Winter Hat - Size 1)

Boy ones that close with Velcro. (Hippopotamus Upcycled Winter Hat - Size 2 to 3)

Ones lined with soft and warm terrycloth and appliqued with very cute upcycled patches. (Vroom Upcycled Winter Hat - Size 3 to 5)

And ones with pom poms on top! (Upcycled Guitar Girl Winter Hat - Size 6 months)

They are all made with upcycled materials. They are lined with warm fleece, velour or terry cloth. Or they are quilted with warm batting in between. They all have earflaps to keep the wind out of tiny ears. And they all close at the neck so they won't be lost or pulled off.

Check out the store for more great upcycled hats coming soon!
And if you'd like the patterns and tutorial to make a hat of your own, let me know in the comments. I might be willing to trace my patterns and make 'em all pretty and readable, scan them and make them available for free download. :)
