Some simple sewing and embellishing can turn a recycled sweater into this supercute hat!
My kitty can look around with his shank-button eyes!
This one was made with a recycled T-shirt and machine topstitching for the whole face.

You can also add whiskers with more embroidery, machine topstitching, or whatever other techniques you like! Don't limit yourself to using the same embellishment methods that I used-check out these other versions I've made!

Or you can make a ferocious kitty by adding some felt teeth across the bottom!

  For this version, I made appliqué eyes with topstitching, a button nose, and whiskers stitched with yarn.

I just had an idea. How about mouse gloves? They can definitely go with the cat hat. Too bad I'm only good with paper crafts, otherwise I would have made those mouse gloves by now.

sassysewer writes: Too cute! An organization here collects caps and mittens for neighborhood children in the winter. What a fun way to use all those sweaters I got sick of this winter and bagged up for donation. I'll make kitty hats instead for the kids! Ooohhh, a new fun project. Thanks so much!
