When I included hats and caps in my list of clothing to upcycle, I didn't think they would draw such a blank when I started to search for ideas!
We have a LOT of caps, and since we only have 4 heads in our house, I thought I'd maybe find something useful to do with the excess.
Funnily enough - just this week in the Round Tuit linky party, there was an entry about upcycling a cap!
Joy from Joy's Jots, Shots & Whatnots, used an old cap as a threadcatcher for her overlocker (serger)
What a great idea!
She also thought of using a cap for a bedside pocket!
The only 2 other ideas I found were:
Stitching the opening of stretchy hats and stuffing them to make small pillows. (see them here)
I used an old cap to make a frog headpiece for our froggy team to wear during a fundraising swim we did:
So there's the challenge to put out there - what uses can you find for old hats and caps? Ways to upcycle or reuse them? What do you do with yours?
I do have a Hats and Caps Upcycling Pinterest Board all set up but haven't found many pins for it yet!
