I'm planning on making another one of these in a couple days so I'll try to make a tutorial while I'm doing it.. I'll scan and post the pattern for you guys too.

I don't seem to be the same today as I was yesterday.

Ok, I made another one, but it was special order for Julie so I'll wait and let her post pics if she wants to.

If you want the hat pattern, it's here:

peak: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v416/alisonw0nderland/Hats/hatpeak.jpg
brim: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v416/alisonw0nderland/Hats/hatbrim.jpg

It's very easy. All you do is cut out 8 of the peak pieces, and 8 more of lining. If your outside fabric is pretty thin you should cut out interfacings for them as well. You also need to cut out two of the peak pieces (notice it needs to be on a fold!) and some interfacing for that if necessary. You then stitch 4 of the peak pieces together all side to side, so you'll have half of your hat. Do this with your other 4 pieces, then stitch them all together. Do the same for the lining. Then stitch the peak right sides together and turn inside out, topstitch a couple rows near the edge to keep it a nice shape! Put the lining of the hat inside the outside part of your hat, the way that you want it to end up. Then Position your brim centered on a line that you want to be the front of your hat and stitch it on. Then cut a piece of fabric an inch and a half wide by however much of your hat is left unstitched plus a couple inches and fold it in half. Center it right sides together, edges matched up at the back of the hat and stitch it all the way around. Make sure that you taper it out where it meets the brim. Now you just neaten up your hat (trim strings, chop off the tapered part of the edging stuff, etc) and you have a hat!

As Allison said, she was nice enough to make one of these hats for me.  And i love it!  And lots of other people do too.  It's amazing how many compliments I've gotten on it and how many memories/thoughts people associate with it.... its a real conversation starter.
Here's a couple pictures of me in it at the All Good Music Festival [yay!]


thanks again Allison!

Don't we all love vintage sewing books? Picked one up myself at the used bookstore for $2, thank ya. A simplicity sewing "bible" from like 1972. Ok, I'll shut up about my book now. ROCKING hat! So cute. Your dog pulls it off so well...

I love this idea and I downloaded the wild things pattern maker dealy but I am having difficulty with these steps:
12. With RIGHT SIDES together, pin the remaining raw edge of the band to the crown sections.
13. Pin the lining to the hat with RIGHT SIDES together matching the raw edges of the lining with the raw edges of the band.
14. Stitch around the band.
15. Turn right side out and press.

at this point, the brim is already attached to the band, and I don't see how they want you to pin the crown right sides to the band w/ the big ole brim in the way. if anyone could shed some light on this I would be ETERNALLY GRATEFUL!!
