Everyone was surprised and our friends throughout the building loved seeing our hats! The boys' hats had snakes on them and the girls' hats had frogs and hearts on them. Here are the directions for making the hats if you are interested:
1. Cut fleece length-wise to go around circumfrence of the head of person to wear hat-most kids were about 20" in length X 18" deep.
2. Turn fleece inside out and sew middle third of the hat closed with a straight seam.
3. Double hat over keeping the seam inside and then cut straight strips down from the open end of the fleece about 4-5 inches long each.
4. Tie fleece in double-knots.
and viola! You have your hat.
A special thank you to Mrs. Z-(my son's teacher) who originally made them with her class!
