Spur of the Moment Scrub Hat


One of my cousins texted me Wednesday night and asked me to make a scrub hat that would cover a low bun for her daughter on the west coast. Shortage of PPE.

I found a pattern online, and dug out this bright fabric (left over from a pillow & gym bag (2008 maybe??) – it was this or Christmas fabric!). I had elastic and twill tape in my sewing box.

I put it on my porch Thursday morning, my cousin picked it up and mailed it.

(Recipient is to let me know about fit/comfort before I make any more for her.)

  1. Thanks so much for doing that it means a lot to those in health care that someone has their back when supplies are running so low. Love you even more than I already do for this!

    • Aw, shucks. (blushing) Thanks to Mom for sparking my interest in sewing, and to Mrs. Bonk, Sykesville Middle School Home Economics teacher for teaching me what Mom didn’t know. 😉 Love you!

  2. Joanie Jenkins recruited me to sew scrub hats. Are you interested?

    • Not at this time – I am trying to get things for my own family done (and I am out of fabric!). Thanks for asking! Maybe I will jump on board after I am finished my things.

  3. Perfect. Joannie has fabric. I didn’t volunteer because I got rid of all my stash when we moved. Who knew?

    • I know, right?? I cut up one of Will’s nice cotton plaid button down shirts today to use for masks (arms were too short, he didn’t wear it much at all). Got enough for 6 masks!

  4. I’m sure this cheerful hat will be gratefully recieved, looks fab x
