I wanted to make this hat for my son - so I browsed online and couldn't find a tutorial that wasn't out of paper or that looked nice. So from me to you...
- 3 red strips each measuring 3"x22"
- 1 red circle 6.75" in diameter
- 2 white strips each measuring 3"x22"
- 2 white circles each 13" in diameter (with a 6.75" circle cut out of the center)
The easiest way I found to get the opening centered was to fold the red and white circles into quarters and line up the corner and trace the red circle's outer line onto the white and then cut.
Then you'll want to baste along the edge of the red strips on the ends.
After the hat was all together, I also top stitched around the bottom red stripe and the white brim where the hat tube meets the brim. I haven't top stitched around the outside of the brim yet...still deciding if I want a stiffer brim or a floppier one.
This is a little big on my 2 1/2 year old, and it's too small for my head, but it sits on his head just fine
