I made the apron up in July for Acadia and finally got around to making the hat up tonight, however she refused to model it so I could take a picture of her in it. Well I asked Evan and he was happy to do the modeling for me  Grin.

I drew out a half circle on the folded fabric no numbers exactly just random sized since she is smaller I did not want it flopping over into her face. it was about 19" when I measured straight down the middle of the circle. Then I cut out 1 thick strip of fabric that was folded in half again and then added in interfacing to the middle stitched it for extra durability. I used a gathering technique for the circle of the hat (I think vegbee has it posted on her blog), then I pinned the wrong sides of the bottom and top of the hat together but left just a bit open to sew the strip together and sealed the edges. Once I did the clothing of the bottom of the hat I then attached the top and bottom together and sealed the edges of that and tada chef hat! I hope that makes sense.
