Zakka 2.0 Sew Along: Dino-Mite Hat

Out of all the projects I’ve made so far from Patchwork, Please!, by Ayumi Takahashi, the Dino-Mite Hat is my favorite. I made my version almost entirely out of scraps, only adding a stashed fat quarter of purple Pearl Bracelet fabric for the outside of the hat. It was a very satisfying project, as I was able to complete it in less than 24 hours.

Quick, easy and fun, I would definitely make this little hat again. The only trouble I ran into was that I accidently started the spikes from the back instead of the front, but I’ve been told that it’s not noticeable to the average observer. Most importantly, my sweet daughter doesn’t seem to mind! At two years old, this hat just fits her. It’s the perfect addition to her dress up box.
