Hi everyone!

The winter is coming fast here, so it was time to make the yearly hat Smiley

I used duct tape to construct the pattern, and below you can follow the different steps.

I use a old pare of nolyn stockings and taped over them.


I used a string to draw the center, front to back and side to side.


Here i find the angle on the brim.


After that, I taped them together. I only made a brim half way around.


I pulled the hat of and poured corn starch inside to avoid the hat to stick. Then I draw lines where i wanted the seams.


After cutting the pieces i transfered them to paper smoothing the edges.


Here is the hat from the right side.


And the left


Hope you enjoyed!
