Another Happy Hat from old, torn sweatpants

Hats are so much fun to make, so satisfying to collect and to wear. Why is that? What is it about hats that makes them special? My daughter's sweatpants had a huge hole, and it was calling my name: "MAMA! Fix me!" Naturally, I felt compelled to rescue the poor sweatpants. I followed My Magic Mom's 'Cloche Hat Tutorial'. Only now do I realize I forgot to take photos of the pieces I traced and cut out; however, the aforementioned tutorial will show you exactly how I did it.

The offending sweatpants

Scissors attack! I separated carefully the elastic waistband for later.

Happy Hat!

Wearing with a smile!
