When I made my Freeform Bag, there were loads of leftover pieces... so I've decided to make them into a hat. Actually there's enough there for more than just one hat... but I'll start with one and see how it goes.
The plan is for a square shaped hat, so I've cut out a template 52 x 22cm. I'll then piece together all my scrumbles to fit the template.
I've taken a few progress photos so that you can get an idea of how it comes together.
I started with a few flower motifs:
And joined some of them together:
Then worked some single crochet around them:
And added some embroidery to embellish:
See how it starts to take on a life of it's own?
