I gave you this, and told you instructions were coming....
Well then I realized that my craft room is a total disaster, and I was tired of it.
Also, our lease is up soon, and we are trying to figure out all the stuff when it comes to that.
So on to the main event!
Gather your pieces.
I decided to show you how to make this hat, with it lined.
Sew these things...
All the things sewn. Don't forget to sew the dart into the top of the hat.
Not comes some of the hard.
Take the top of the hat with both the liner, and the outside stuff, fold in half.
Take the side pieces and line up the centers together.
This is the most difficult part of this WHOLE thing.
Sew following the curve.
Hint: I start with the center and work my way down, then start again in the center and work my way down the other side.
Now for the bill. Find the center of the bill, line it up with the seam in the front.
This is where the "strap" comes in. If you are not lining the hat, sew the strap of fabric in place of the lining.
Top stitch or hand sew the hole closed.
I made this out of an old shirt, which I wouldn't recommend.
Unless you like this look.
p.s. I know I used black thread, I know!!
That's what was in the serger, and I was TOO lazy to change it.
So there. I'm a rebel.
