Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hat! - Free Pattern!

As a child one of my favourite shows at the time was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.....now years later and a few crappy remakes later, they are making a new film which surprisingly doesn't look half bad!

So we thought why not? lets make a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles based hat!

This is especially great for fancy dress parties for children or even with a few adjustments for adults as well!

Perfect for that little part of all of us that wants to be a superhero!

We have included the patterns for both a children's hat as well as an adult hat below!
