I made a hat

…for a stuffed monkey.

Not my intention.

While looking around blogland for Gatsby-inspired digs (can’t wait for this movie AND Vintage May!), I stumbled upon this random free pattern and instructional video for a “flat cap”.  Thought I’d give it a try.  But I wasn’t sure about how to get the right size for printing.  What’s a dpi anyway?

Whatever I ended up with looked about right for a kid…okay maybe a baby, I’ve got one of those.

Wrong.

 I knew it as I got halfway in.  But I was having so much fun! It’s actually a great pattern!

My mother’s helper will love this for her AGDs!

Watch out for the food police!  I love that my first rule is eat with utensils.  That’s embarrasing.

We had some major laughs around here with each kid and husband trying this thing on!

I’ll have another go at this soon, just increased it 30%, so wish me luck.

And, now I will EAT YOU MONKEY!
