More fleece hats
These fleece hats (all 12 of them) were made from a single Ikea Skogsklocka blanket which costs £4.50. I think that's pretty good for a piece of nice quality fleece 130cm x 170cm.
These are a special request made for a colleague of DBF's who organises things for the cubs and scouts, I think maybe for the leaders as I only made adult and teen sizes, none for young kids.
It does get boring making lots in the same colour though I did it assembly line style, and measured and pinned the brims whilst watching TV.
The fleece was really wrinkled from being squished tightly in the packaging and even with a rinse and spin in the machine and 24hrs on the line the wrinkles only dropped out a little. Hopefully it won't be too noticable when they are being worn.
