I'm so stoked I figured this one out! Bonus points to whomevver can tell me how to make a covered button at the top!


The tutorial can be found here: http://clubweb.interbaun.com/lavarocket/radar.pdf

I haven't tested it on anyone yet, so i hope it's clear. Feel free to email we with any q's! And i totally want to see the completed ones!!!

Love the hat!

Covered buttons are pretty easy to do.

You cut a circle of fabric larger than the button and hand stitch a running stitch around the edge with the tails of thread cut longer.  I would use a strong buttonhole thread. If you have ever made a yo yo it is exactly the same.

You can but not necessary use a little batting or stuffing on top of the button.  Might want to glue it down so it doesn't shift.

It would work best for a hat if you use a button with a shank I think. 

Place the button on the center of the fabric top side down.  Pull threads tight and tie off.

I know they have covered button tools at the fabric store but I have never used them before.

You can buy the metal buttons and I think it would show you how to do it on the back of the packaging.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Ooh, this is definitely a project I want to try sometime. I am a huge M.A.S.H. fan and so is my dad so I might just make two hats  Grin *starts to hunt for nice fabric*
