I've tried to make hats before but it ended horribly. Cry
This is the first one I'm not ashamed of. I used a modified version of McCall's M4478, hat A.




Scroll down for brim tutorial.

So cute! What do you think made this a better hat-making experience for you? Did you try some new techniques, get lucky...? Making hats seems a bit daunting to me. Any words of encouragement now that you've made such a lovely hat?  Grin

That looks PERFECT! Is it for a girl or a boy?  I've made a few so-so hats before too. Tell us what you did right!  Roll Eyes

Thanks everyone!
jeanderbyNY: I tried to sketch instructions for the brim but I don't know if it's clear. English isn't my main language either so sorry if my sewing vocabulary is not accurate.


head vampire: I tampered with the pattern until it worked. It took all my patience. Smiley

Super job.   Especially like the inside lining.   It gives it a very professional touch.

Very cute!

I used the same pattern & made the fisherman style one & I made it the exact way you did, I could not for the life of me figure out how to attach everything with their directions.

Yes, and the seam allowances are all wrong. They're not even the same in the english and french directions.  Huh
I had to go by trial and error.

This is amazing.  You Rock!  Is the brim just fabric and the same amount as the rest of the hat or is there something else in there to make it stiffer?  What kind of fabric can you use for this any?  Sorry if this is to many questions but I have never been able to do hats and your drawing makes it look so easy that I am like I must be missing something.  Cheesy

Thanks! The brim is the same fabric as the rest. I haven't tried a lot of different fabrics but it's easier with a fabric that has some stiffness and doesn't stretch easily. If it stretches too much the hat ends up too big. For the lining I used thin cotton. Smiley

Love it! I don't have patience to make hats, but you tempt me, you tease me so! Smiley I'll have to give it a try once more...

Love it!  Great job on the hat - I hate making hats but that way looks pretty do-able.
