    Smile making the 10 minute " fleece hats "

    I came across some fleece fabric I had in my "hoarding stash".I have made 28 hats in less than a week. I've joined an organization here in St Augustine to help the homeless.Still haven't gotten rid of all of the fleece!Isn't that called "killing 2 birds with one stone? "

    cn you share some pictures and directions. I live on Long Island NY and would love to make some.
    we just had 8" of snow yesterday.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I believe Jenny Doan had this type pattern a few years ago. I made a few for my DH and myself but can't find the instructions. I have lots of fleece left over and would like to make some for the local shelter. Anyone have the link to that.

    I made some for Hospice in the next town and they just loved them.

    I cut a rectangle, sewed up three sides rounding the corners as I sewed. Folded a hem and sewed it down, turned it inside out and was done. I have a basket of them by my door, everyone grabs one as needed. I also buy the stretch gloves after winter on clearance and keep those in the basket too. The kids learned to give them away to any one that needed them, there was always more at home.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    My church sewing group also made 36 of these in one morning and took them to an agency that serves the homeless. We used the free Fleece Beanie Pattern & Tutorial on Craftsy.

    What a great idea. I have tons of fleece with smaller yardage. Nothing planned for it, yet too big to just throw away (gasp). This will be a great idea and be able to have them on hand when shelters are looking for them.
    Thanks!
