Unable to purchase the hat I wanted at H&M, I decided to make my own. After I gave up on being upset about not being able to buy it, I thought, "hey, at least this way I can customize it to suit my needs". Its basically an improvement on an 'ible I posted in '09. Link below:


If you like my 'ible, please vote for me for "Sew Warm Contest", thanks!

The title pretty much explains what it is: a convertible winter hat scarf hood.

-Buttons, button kits, or materials for bottle cap buttons
                                                                   -some type of plastic card
                                                                   -bottle caps
                                                                   -scrap cloth/material

Cost: High: $15
            Low: $0

Time: High: 3 hours
            Low: .5 hours

Step 1: Measure Head, Sew a Tube

Pic 1: Measure head, make sure you leave 3-4 inches extra because you want it loose when you wear it as a scarf/hood

Pic 2: Sew

Pic 3: I sewed the excess down(inside the hat) so I wouldn't have flappy pieces and it also looks cool. I used weird colored thread because I was hand sewing everything and thought it would give it a more crafty look

Pic 4: Sew both sides down
I love this! It looks so comfortable to wear and those buttons are awesome :)
