This is a SUPER easy project, so I've written really loose instructions intentionally. You don't have to do it in one specific way, but really anyway that works. Be creative with this! Make it your own and go back to school with an original and stylish hat!
Step 1: Supplies & Tools
You can use just about any type of fabric. Fleece, wool, or even knit. Even easier, use some scrap like an old T-Shirt or Hoodie. I'm using an old blank t-shirt.
Anything can be used really. Anything you can tie a not in, and will hold up to a beating. I'm using some glow in the dark polypropelene rope. (Cut using Tim Andersons handy trick for stright melted cuts.)
The old standard.
Sewing Machine / Needle
You can use a machine, or do this by hand. I assume you can determine the pros and cons of each. I went with sewing by hand, as I'm not to confident with my skills to set up my mothers sewing machine.
