A few weeks ago, a posting on the CraftStylish blog caught my interest. The project was a step-by-step tutorial to make a simple summer sun hat.
Normally I'm not all that excited about garment sewing. But a hat is . . . well, it's a hat! And the instructions are simple and free. How can you go wrong?
First, I printed out the instructions from the CraftStylish Blog, and selected two fabrics from my stash that were fun together.
Next I followed the instructions, took some measurements and made my paper pattern.
Then, cut the fabric . . . .
. . . and started sewing. One piece to another.
Once all the pieces were sewn, I turned the hat right-side out and edge stitched along the brim.
How fun is that? I'm ready for the beach!
I liked that you start with your measurements, then build the pattern. Rather than measure and try to match the pattern to the measurement.
