Hey all. Been lurking around for a long time now. The past week or two I've been checking out things other people have made. I'll tell you, it's put me in a really crafty mood despite all my college work! Anyway, I've been sewing for a couple years now but I'm not super awesome amazing at it lawl.

I found a tutorial a while back (I'm sorry to say I've lost it!) and made quite a few of these hats. Finding extra large mens sweaters on mondays for a dollar at value village = hat material for days. I fell in love with this orange one, despite the fact that it poops out orange fluffs all the time. I'd suggest using a serger for making slouchy hats from sweaters. But since I'm poor... Well here you go anyway.

I messed up in a few places, I know! O: I should've folded it better but ah well! I did this one pretty quick. Here's one I did a while back. I loved it so much but I gave it to my aunt.

Also, sorry for links but it won't let me post images. sadface.

Cute hat!  I love the color, and the size/floppiness of the hat - I bet you can tuck all your hair up in it if you want.  That's always a plus for me when considering hats.  Good job Smiley

That's exactly what I did! :] I love shoving my hair in floppy hats and only leaving the sides and my fringe/bangs/whatever out haha. It's my favorite part about floppy hats. n.n Thank you very much!

Thank you so much! I tried searching the web myself but I didn't really find much!

like what you did with the seams

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.
