A Hat Full of Memories

Our Grandpa passed away last month, and I took a few of his shirts hoping to make something special out of them. I thought about Grandpa and all the fun memories while I sewed this hat. I used one of Grandpa's flannel shirts, and this tutorial. I made sure to plan ahead, so that I have enough left to make a hat for my younger son as well. The lining is from an old pair of medium-weight cotton pants. The pattern is sized for a 6-8 year old boy, but I think it is on the smaller side. Good thing I cut it on the bias like she suggested or it would not have fit. Now, to figure out how to scale the pattern down for an 8 month old...
