So, I saw this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56018.0, but unfortunately I couldn`t read the tut, so I just winged it. It`s not rocket science, is it?  Grin

But I love how it turned out, this will be awesome for summer. I`m planning on making a ton of these.









Thanks for looking! Please let me know, what you think!  Cheesy

Thanks! I`m not sure, don`t want to take credit for someone else`s idea... I mean, even though I just took the pictures as an inspiration... Perhaps I`ll take pictures along the way with the next one, if you like.  Smiley

That is super cute!  I would be curious to know the dimensions you used for your pieces - especially how long/wide you made the main part that ties.

Thank you all! I made another on this morning, and took some pics along the way. It is really simple & quick to make!  Cheesy

First of all draw a bill on a piece of flexible cardboard. Put your cardboard on the wrong side of your fabric and trace it twice with adding about 1/2 inch seamallowance. Cut your fabric out.
For the bandana I took a piece of fabric, 6 1/2 inch x 40 inch. This time I made it not so long, because I cant even stand having my hair hanging down - and the band was even worse Cheesy

I think the perfect length would be 6 1/2 x 45 inches.



I interfaced the pieces of the bill with light interfacing, it makes it a lot easier to work with.
Put the two bill-pieces right sides together and sew. Leave the side that you will be attaching to the band open.
Turn rightside out and press seams. Put the cardboard in your bill-pocket and make sure, it fits nicely in. Baste along the down curve and topstitch the rest of the bill. It should now look somehow like this:



Take your bandana-piece and fold it in half, good sides together. Mark the middle lengthwise of your piece and fit your bill in. Mark with pins, where the bill will sit.



Then I marked on the folded fabric a triangle 8 inches toward the end on both sides:



Now stitch along the marked lines and the rest - exept your marked area, where the bill will sit. Cut off the unneeded fabric. Turn it rightside out through the bill-hole, press and fold the raw edges of your bandana inside.



Pin your bill inside the hole and make sure it sits nicely in the middle. Topstitch over the bill. And then topstitch the whole rest.

Voil, your done!



Some action-shots:





Hope that was kind of clear, I`m not a native speaker, so if there are any questions, feel free to ask! Cheesy

That is so awesome!  Usually visors look so ugly, but these are gorgeous! I have a friend who could so use one of these since she doesn't really care for hats, thanks for the tut!

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.
