To tell you the truth, this hat can probably be made for even less, depending on where you buy your material. I got a 1 yard remnant of black fleece from Jo-anns, and that is probably enough to make 2 adult hats depending on how big your head is. This hat fit my 9 year old sister and my mom. This is an entry for the sew warm contest. If you like this instructable please vote for my sister and I! If anyone needs any help notify me in the comments!

Step 1: Materials

All you need to make your head nice and toasty warm are:
  • Fleece
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread*
  • Scissors
  • 5 minutes
*If you use a needle and thread, add around 2 hours to the time. I wouldn't recommend using a needle and thead.
Awesome. But I dont have a sewing mahcine. -tear-
I can operate a sewing machine, <em>but choose not to.</em> All you have to do is just sew in the areas it tells you to and&nbsp;do all that other good stuff. No need to cry, Frindledon3! I don't own one anyway and plan to do this!&nbsp;I could probably figure out how to do this no-sew, if needed. Just PM me!&nbsp;
Patience. Watch the curbs, thrift stores, Craig's List, sometimes Free-Cycle. Heavy built to last pre-1975 machines are often tossed or sell for &lt;$15. Most can be brought back to life with a through cleaning, rarely do they need more adjustment then the thread tension. Heavy, but will outlast the next generation of sewers. Yahoo! has several groups that help people resurrect/keep them going. A Zigzag isn't even necessary for most home projects like this or curtains, towels etc.<br /> <br /> Ron<br />
You could do it by hand (if you have loads and loads of spare time that is :))<br /> <br /> I made a hat like this way back. It's so warm I only use it when it is very very cold. Made an accompanying &nbsp;scarf to go with it as well.
I'm making it for a cancer patient. To keep her head warm in the winter. I can adjust it for someone with no hair.. Thanks
Very detailed! Thank you!
Cute hat!&nbsp; Looks toasty.<br />
