Zakka 2.0 - Dinosaur Hat

We are just trucking right along in the Patchwork, Please sew-along. This week is an adorable dinosaur hat for baby or toddler. I decided to make two, one for each of the relishes. However, it looks like little relish will get both, because it was a tad bit small for big relish. See, I make large children. They are both in the 97%ile for height and weight and have been since they were born. My (not even) 3 year old is the size of a 5 year old and my 13 month old is the size of a 2 year old.

It's been raining here for two days so I took pictures in the master bedroom where there is lots of natural please excuse the messy room and the dog bed!

I still got a picture of big relish wearing it...

Little relish not so took about 25 pictures to get these few...

I used a flannel for the hat portion and just some cotton animal print scraps for the rest and the insides. Not sure if I would make this again, but it was a very quick sew....took less than an hour to make both. The shape of the hat reminds me of a football helmet, so I bet with some modifications it would be a great helmet/hat for a Halloween costume. Maybe just make it out of felt and make a mouth guard that just Velcros over. These are the times I wish I had a little boy.

Next week is a quilt so I need to get started or at least scale it down into a pillow or tote bag!
