...................................

so onto the tutorial...
maybe this weekend you can have a craft bee with your own kiddies, invite over a neice or nephew, or volunteer to lead a demo with some local kids' groups on how they can make their own recycled hats!

and little rikrak had a great suggestion when he saw the end result: perhaps the style is a little more suited to girls? why not encourage the boys to make one a bit larger for their moms for mothers day? lovely idea!

Recycled Denim Hat Tutorial
by Karen Meyers

You will need:

About 12 inches (1/3 yard) of medium weight fabric such as denim, canvas, chintz or corduroy. You can choose from your fabric stash or recycle some fabric from old jeans, shorts or curtains, like I did for this denim hat.

If you are using denim, make sure you have a denim needle for your sewing machine; this will make the job much easier.



1. Take the pattern that you have printed out (the pattern needs to measure from the top of the point to the bottom of the bell shape 9 inches, and across the bottom from point to point 8 1/2 inches. enlarge as neeeded.) and cut it out along the outside line. Place and pin your pattern on your fabric and take special care to lay the grain line arrow on the vertical grain of the fabric. If you are using fabric yardage, the grain line is parallel to the selvedge edge (the long edge of the fabric that doesn’t ravel) but if you are using a recycled garment it may be a bit harder to determine. On the jeans I used for my project, I placed the grain line arrow parallel to the side seams of the jeans, and this worked great. This step is important, and insures that you are cutting your hat quadrants on the bias and will give your hat a little bit of stretch and make it comfortable and fit most sizes.

2. Cut 4 hat quadrants. If using yardage, you can fold your fabric in half and cut 2 at a time and if you are using recycled jeans just lay your pattern on one leg and cut 2, then un - pin your pattern and lay it on the other leg and cut 2 again.

3. Take 2 quadrants and pin them together, right sides of the fabric together along one long edge. Repeat with the other 2 quadrants.


4. Stitch together 2 quadrants at a time, using a ¼ inch seam allowance. The easiest way to achieve this is to line the edge of the presser foot up with the edge of the fabric as you sew.


...............................................



5. Press the seams open. Use the “nose” of your iron to help you open up the seams as you press. It gets a little tricky at the top of the hat where it curves, but use the edge of the ironing board to help you (as in the picture) or a dressmakers ham if you have one.

6. Pin the 2 halves together, matching the top where the 2 seams meet.

7. Stitch the 2 halves together again using a ¼ inch seam allowance. (Remember to line the edge of your presser foot up with the edge of the fabric.)


8. Admire your hat that is taking shape!


...............................................

9. One of the advantages of cutting your hat on the bias is that the edges won’t fray, so if you are in a hurry or you like the look of an unfinished edge, you can skip this step. Otherwise, finish the edge of the hat by using a zig zag stitch. Put your machine of the widest zig zag it has and sew, allowing the needle to just fall off the edge of the fabric every time it comes down on the right side of the zig zag stitch. This encloses the edge.

10. This is what your edge will look like. If you have a serger you can serge this edge, or even get ambitious and enclose the edge using bias tape. It kind of just depends on the skills of your girls and the time you have for the project.


11. Yippee! You are done with your hat. It’s time to celebrate and maybe cut and sew another one since this was so easy, fast and fun to make!

Felted Flower Tutorial
by Karen Meyers


You will need: Ribbing from the bottom of a felted wool sweater
(Search your closet for an old sweater that (oops!) doesn’t fit anymore or there are many vendors on Etsy selling wool scraps, just search unders supplies for felted wool scraps.)

A felted wool ball or button for the center of the flower

Matching thread and glue


12. Cut the ribbing off the bottom of a sweater that you have felted, it should be at least 10 inches long.

13. Cut along each indent in the ribbing to within ½ inch of the top edge.


14. Continue cutting along the entire piece of ribbing


15. Run a bead of glue (Elmers works fine or any other fabric glue you have lying around) along the uncut part of the ribbing.


...............................................

16. Begin rolling up your flower.

17. Keep rolling it up, pressing it together so the glue saturates the wool.


18. This is what the underside of the flower should look like.


19. Put a nice dollop of glue in the center of the flower and press in your felt ball (or button) for the center.

...............................................

20. It looks great! Take a little break and give the glue a chance to dry and set nicely.

21. Now we are going to secure it a bit extra and sew it to the hat. Thread your needle and pull down both ends of the thread to meet so that you are working with a double strand of thread. I teach my girls to never tie knots, especially when working with wool since eventually they will always work themselves free and come undone. Instead, do 3 small stitches (1/8 inch long) in the same place, one of top of each other, and pull tight. This is much stronger and more secure that a knot. So, start with 3 tiny stitches and secure the end of the rolled up flower together.

22. Position the flower in the center of a quadrant and just start whip stitching the flower in place. The stitches don’t have to be too neat since the petals will cover them up.

23. Keep going, whip stitching your flower in place all around until you end up where you started.
...............................................

24. This is what your stitches will look like underneath. When you finish, again, don’t tie a knot but secure with 3 little stitches one of top of the other.

25. Cut some leaves from felted wool or fabric scraps.

26. Add a bead of glue to the back. And glue to the hat. You can also sew on the leaves if you like.

27. You are done! Now it’s time to model!
...............................................

My cute niece did the honors for me for this tutorial. But check out the pics from our summer camp we did last year. ( I’m not sure if the girls enjoying making or modeling their hats more!)

If you don’t want to make the flower you can embellish your hat with some free hand stitching (like Allie did in her polka dot hat) or add some appliqués. Kristal has some great ones, like these: http://www.etsy.com/listing/43536763/ironon-funvintage-or-not-butterflies-to right in her Etsy shop! (editor's note: aw thanks, karen! :)

The main thing is to have fun with the kids and share their pride when they make something wonderful with their own hands and creative minds!

    Karen's shop is filled with great items, but when I go out without my child, I like a small bag, so my favorite is the turquoise & greens triangle pouch.

  39. Well, you're right about Karen's shop -- the items really are wonderful. It's hard to pick one item, but I particularly like the Pink Organza Rose Handle Purse. I think it's the contrast of the soft pink (and what a clever idea to incorporate the rose into the overall design!) with the more businesslike brown stripe.

    Thanks for the giveaway, and for the tutorial, too!

  40. For Earth Day, my husband and I agreed not to use our car all day. We walked to a lunch meeting with friends (3 miles round trip); I walked to the library (4 miles round trip); and to the paint store (3.5 miles round trip). If I had this much exercise every day, I'd never have to worry about what I ate!

    Happy birthday, Karen!

In couple last years we regularly prepare earth day celebration for elementary and secondary schools in our town so we spent at least 3 days outside in the park teaching pupils about environmental issues – recykling, separating waste, making some small crafts from paper, land arts, teaching about bird watching, knowing seeds, herbs and so on.
