Super Easy Martha Stewart Project

Do you like hats?
Do you like to sew?
Do you have a pair of jeans that 1) don't fit; 2) are stained or 3) have a hole and don't just want to throw them away?
Have I got a project for you!
Last Christmas I found this craft project of MarthaStewart.com. I loved it at first sight but didn't have the time to try it. It's been on my mind since then. When CSIProject.com invited folks to their Martha Stewart challenge I thought of these caps. But I didn't want to make a wool cap in the middle of Summer! Who does!?

We've been cleaning out closets and have a few pair of jeans and always in a recycling/reuse/reduce mode I decided to make the beanie out of jeans. This is SUPER easy - takes less than, well 20 minutes really and the cool thing about Martha's site - she has a video with the instructions showing you every step of the way. So...
...if you like hats...
...if you like to sew...
...if you have a pair of jeans you'd like to recycle (or any other fabric - one hat takes 1/4 yd.)
...try this project!
