I saw this craft in the Crafty Mama book from the library and thought it would be a quick and fun hat to make for Ian. It was fast, and the instructions were easy to follow. However, I ended up with a hat too big for even my head and swolled up Ian. Don't get me wrong, my kid has a big noggin, but this hat was huge. Since fleece doesn't fray, I got out my handy scissor and chopped it up some to help it fit better. I'm not crazy about it, but Ian seems to think it's cool. It kinda makes me think of bad Darth Vader costume gone punk.
