I bet you have a couple of old t-shirts lying around at your place – yours or your kids’ will do. They can be made into  this ultra useful, extra cute slouchy beanies which you can and will make atleast half a dozen in one evening. They are easy to make and super super cute. Sorry I am repeating myself. They are that CUTE.

Materials needed to make this floppy hat

how to make a slouchy hat

An old t shirt ( one with a wide bottom edge rim is good so a sweater is preferable but any knit tshirt also would do )I am using an old top of my daughter.The only criteria is that you get clear fabric of length 11 inches from the bottom edge and width of 21 inches all around.

Scissors

Thread to match

Tape measure

This hat can be sewn by hand easily but a sewing machine will make things faster.

You can make this reversible by making a similar one from another t-shirt and joining at the bottom edge, keeping right sides together. Do not forget to leave a small space unstitched to turn the hat right side out. Sew up the spot after everything is turned right. You have two hats in one go and a super cozy one at that. Or just give a cuff by adding a facing to the bottom  edge. 

For want of a model I have my paper mache kitten modelling for the floppy hat
