I am SO not a hat person, but I figure that if I wear a hat during all of my free time, I will finally think I look ok in them.  I plan to make a number of different styles to try out, but here is the 1stish try.  Let me know what you think.

This picture is so dark...but it is a 'cabbie' style hat. 

I think I did pretty good on the stitching...

Here is the inside...I love it!

And you probably won't see a picture of me again...I hate myself in pictures...


I also made my friend the same hat, and this is the inside of hers...she looked so much better in it.

That is an awesome hat!  What kind of fabrics did you use?  Did you follow a pattern?

I used a light black canvas for the outside.  The first one I tried I used this large weave suiting material and it was a disaster.  The inside is just cotton.

The pattern I used was McCall 4607 View A. 
If you try this pattern, I have found it so much easier to cut out the interfacing as close to the pattern as possible and then iron it on the cotton before cutting anything else out.  I laid the cotton ontop of the canvas and cut everything at once then.  I don't know if it will work for you...but it was way easier for me.

Thanks you guys.

Your hat came out so nice! I love the bat print lining.  Cheesy

The style was a good pick for your oval face...it looks very cute on you! I have an oval-shaped face too. You will find that you can wear many different hat styles and look great!!

Thanks!  I'm gonna make myself a hat person if it's the last thing I do!  It helps when people don't think I look ridicuous.

Nice job! I've made a hat like this before, but it's way too tight.  Does your have a stiff buckram fabric (i think that's what it's called?) in the brim?

I did use buckrum in the brim...but there must be different stiffnesses of it cuz this is still really floppy.  Joann only had one roll when I was there...so I assumed it was the only thing available.  I'll keep my eyes open for something stiffer.

Thanks midnight.  The more comments I get...the more confident I am feeling about it.
