New Pattern - Headgear
Yeah, its ugly, but I think I want to learn how to make hats. An ugly but simple pattern seems like a good place to start. Right? Vintage hat patterns seem to be as rare as hen's teeth these days. (I have one or two but I'm afraid to cut them.) If I ruin this one, it's no big deal ... so I bought it.
It looked less ugly on EBay, I swear. But I still plan to make it. I don't have any appropriate fabric in the stash but the next time I go to Joann, I'll look for something cute and stretchy/fleecy. Probably not leopard though.
Someday, I'd like to learn to make stiff hats with buckram frames or straw bodies. SCARY! Anyone out there routinely make hats? Any tips and tricks? What is the best way to start? Know of any good hat blogs?
