We Believe...

..that the solution to inequality, pain, suffering, and lack in the world is ‘those that have’ sharing willingly from the heart with ‘those that have not’ who are sick and/or needy.

Warm clothing and bedding for babies, quilts for the aged or ill, books for the disadvantaged, essentials and household goods for those who have lost everything in floods, house fires, or due to job loss; these are just some of the need we assist with. You can help.

Tip for lining knitted or crocheted hats for warmth with fleece

By

My daughter made a hat for my son and it was a gorgeous knitted hat. I looked at it and thought I could make it warmer by adding an insert. I measured his head and added 1 ” then cut out a piece of microfleece that was 3″ by the length and sewed the short ends together to make a tube that I tried on his head to make sure it was the right length. Then I turned the tube so the seam was on the inside and whip stitched it inside the hat, catching the back of the knitting so it didn’t show on the outside.

When you whipstitch the tube, whipstitch the edge closest to the outer edge of the hat first, pulling the stitches as you go to make sure the hat has lots of stretch in it. Then whipstitch the other edge of the microfleece and Voila! You have a warm knitted hat with a nice cozy liner.

This works great if your kids are allergic to wool, too.

I found pictures and instructions on the internet on this blog: http://www.craftstylish.com/item/33810/how-to-line-a-knit-or-crocheted-hat

If you would like to make warm knitted or crocheted hats and donate them to www.ReliefShare.org for the sick and needy families we assist, you might want to consider lining them with microfleece, fleece, knit fabric or even cotton fabric for warmth.
