When a Glove Becomes a Hat

This is an idea I always like to share with my mini friends. A little project that will be the easiest, the least expensive, and the fastest creation - for me anyway..... Materials you will need - scissors, glue, an oval template, and of course a "special glove". A lady's glove is a better size - a man's will make a larger hat. Trust me, no two will ever be alike. A worn-out glove makes for a very beat-up looking hat! I've actually picked a glove up off the street - WHAT A FIND!! Follow my illustrations - after you've cut the tip off, remove the bit of lining inside - find a good spot on the main part of the glove to cut the oval. If you plan properly, you'll be able to cut 5 ovals to make 5 hats. Poke the tip right inside the inner oval and glue. A bit of narrow ribbon, a strip of leather, or dress it up as a lady's hat will cover any imperfections. It'll look great hanging in your house.........
