It’s getting chilly here, which means it’s time for hat & mittens! This is a super simple way to give new or old winter wear a little makeover…drab to fab! The cost? I spent $1 on fabric, and used less than 1/4 yard, so 25 cents! Add in a glue stick, and about 4 inches of heat ‘n bond, and we’re talking a grand total of about 75 cents. Love it.

And trying to figure out which mittens go to what girl? Problem solved.

Drab to Fab Hat & Mittens


Hat: I made six rolled fabric flowers (click HERE for the tutorial)–three for each hat. I made two of them a little larger, with one smaller. The only thing I did differently was the way I folded the material in the beginning. Instead of taking my strip of fabric and rolling it up into a tube, I folded in in half, then ironed it flat. I did this because I wanted the frayed edges of the material to show on the flowers. Ironing it down makes a huge difference!

Mittens: I followed the directions on the heat ‘n bond package to apply the “k” and “e” to each mitten. So easy, and SO darling!

Wintertime just got a little cuter. :)
