I've been making a lot of these lately.  The last time, I finally took pics of the process.  I'll start with the finished product and then start at the beginning.

DD is really, really into pirates.  This is just one of the many pirate themed things she has.  This is modeled by DD.


Pattern all cut out, it's all one continuous piece with the designed machine embroidered from my own scanned design:


The crown portion sewn together and the front and back flipped up and pinned:


Stitched all around and the sides pinned in place ready for topstitching:

So the plus sign area is the part that goes over the head (with the spaces sewn shut to make a box/bowl shape), and then the shaped part is topstitched all the way around?

Very cute pirate hat!  Love the embroidery (I want an embroidery machine.  *pout* )!  Smiley

Yes, that's exactly the method.  In fact, the mock up I made to check for fit (without and front and back portion), DD calls her "box hat".   Cheesy  I didn't mean for it to actually be a hat for her, but she's addicted to hats, so she claimed it.

One more thing to add to my pirate nursey! But, no nifty machine to make a design for me... Cry Stencils it is!

Thanks for sharing!
