a hatSadie, a fellow sewing instructor, shared the tutorial for this hat with me and I knew it was one I had to make! It's simple to construct and fun to embellish because you can make it as funky as you want and it will look great on a little boy.
The hat I made is certainly wearable but a little rough around the edges, literally. The edging looks a little sloppy but I think it adds character. It is made from very thin t-shirt fabric so I'll try using thicker fabric next time. That should make it easier to sew and also give the ear flaps a little more structure--with this hat they are too light and flimsy, in my opinion. And, because I wanted to finish the hat before going to bed, I kept the embellishments simple; I added a fancy stitch on the burgundy tee fabric and a tassle using the hem from the green tee fabric. JP loved it!
