It's all about personal style when it comes to this customizable cap. With removable accessories — braids, horns, flowers, pint-size pals, even a "fauxhawk"—your kids can change their look to match their changing mood.
Start by sewing five snap bases to a store-bought hat (one at the center and the remainder placed 2 inches out, hole-to-hole, in varying directions, as shown at right). Then create the fun add-ons shown at right, using the snap tops.
Cut off the fi ngers of a knit stretch glove. To make each pal, fold a 2- by 1-inch piece of f leece in half widthwise and fringe the unfolded edges. Stitch the folded edge to a glove fingertip with embroidery floss (see right).
Stuff the finger with fleece scraps.
Sew the open end closed (C). Sew a snap to the unfringed end and use fabric glue to attach googly eyes.
