100 One Yard Wonders Dinosaur

I sometimes think that having a crafty mom makes children spoiled. They can imagine pretty much anything, and I can make it happen, even if it can’t be bought.

Jump the Shark Hat Tutorial (Winter Hats 2012)

Yes, I realize that it’s 2013. However, this hat was made for my boy in September, I was just busy with the blog redesign and didn’t have time to post about it. I was sure I would be finished by November, but, well, that didn’t happen. So even though it’s 2013 now it wasn’t back then, and 2013 will have it’s own winter hats post (or, more likely, posts).

My little girl is still young enough that I get to decide which hat to make (it was the rainbow hat this year), but my son decides for himself what he wants, and it’s up to me to make it happen.

So, shark it is. I call it “Jump the Shark” because my geeky side thinks it’s funny. But I think it’s cute even if you don’t get the reference. What do you think?

I used a mix of techniques I used in previous tutorials, but for your ease I’m copy-pasting all the instructions.
