Did you know that you loose something like 80% of your body heat through the top of your head – ok that’s a factoid (I don’t know the fact I just know what I’ve been told by ‘them’). We lost the little girl’s hat the other day, it was a 99 cent bargain from the thrift store (so it’s not a tragedy – just a bother) and I can’t for the life of me figure out where we’ve been that we may have misplaced it. Now that I’ve made a replacement we are sure to find it any minute.
So here I am cutting down t-shirts again, I know that I could have just cut a cylinder out of the t-shirt – but really we are going for some sort of style here and besides I really like the texture. Here is my little superstar in her recycled t-shirt hat…
This t-shirt has been a recycling stretch, I’ve made 2 birds, one hat and started a new rug. I bet when hubby decided he didn’t want it anymore he didn’t realize that he’d continue seeing it everywhere. Save your t-shirts, it’s amazing what you’ll be able to recycle them into – recycling craft projects as far as the eye can see.
As soon as I get a moment I’ll post some quick directions. For those so inclined please refer to the ‘How to cut down a t-shirt page‘ and just make the ribbon width a little thicker.
