No-Sew Winter Hat From Old Sweat Shirt

Recycled Winter Hat

Don't throw out that old sweatshirt! Cut off the sleeves and turn them into winter hats in less than 15 minutes.
You need:
  • Old Sweatshirt
  • Fabric Shears
Cut a sleeve off an old sweatshirt. Cut the elastic off the cuff. At the wrist end, cut slits up the sleeve about 6". Randomly tie slits together in double knots. Not all the slits need to be tied, some can just hang down. 
Roll the other end up twice to make a brim. It's really that easy!


  1. Every year, from yardsales I collect gloves, hats, and scarves for homeless people. My budget it a quarter for each. Now, I will be on the lookout for sweatshirts.Thanks.

    I love this idea as well. I think it's wonderful what you are doing for the homeless, God knows, they need all the help they can get. You're a good person!

    Thank you so much for your comments.
