A Sun Hat for You!

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.

Happy Stitching!
