Dinosaur Hat

I saw a crocheted dinosaur hat on some blog and thought it was so cute and knew I could figure out how to make one from fleece. My son has kind of a big head, so I thought I would use the adult small earflap hat pattern I had. Only thing is that the earflaps are kinda long since adults must have taller heads, even if his circumference is the same as a small adult head.

The pattern actually called for velcro on the flaps, but since they are long for him I can tie the ear flaps under his chin easy enough. I stitched this while he was napping, so I didn't have a chance to try it on before I started assembling. So, now I need to think about how I can alter the lenth of the earflaps when the stitching is on the inside and is closed. But for now I can tie it. It might not look too bad if I just so a straight stitch where I want them to end and I can use my pinking shears to create a pointed edge. That's the great thing about fleece, that I can leave an unfinished edge or use pinking shears and it's not going to fray. I think that might be what I do.
