Hats for the Homeless

Homeless Hats

40 fleece hats complete! 🙂  Thank you to Jim & Patti Broulette for delivering them to the Lake City homeless shelter. Special thanks to Nancy Cornwell, my neighbor and mentor who shared with me her expertise in sewing with fleece.  The hat patterns we used were taken from her book, Adventures with Polar Fleece, a Sewing Expedition.

Adventures with Polar Fleece

The only machine used was a serger. This made the sewing process very easy and the hats sturdier.  Though we used an old Babylock model that didn’t have the jet-air threading feature, this machine was solidly-built and was among the last few models that were made in Japan.
