Birthday Selfies/ I Made A Hat
Today is my birthday. It’s been a thunderstormy day here in Berlin, and I didn’t feel like warping this morning. Instead, I played with some of my fabric and turned it into a cap. It’s pretty much the sloppiest thing I’ve ever made, but I wanted to know the form and shape of a baseball hat, and now I know it!
I used a 60cm x 60cm piece of handwoven fabric, and another 50cm x 50cm piece of cotton muslin. The bowl of the hat is made of six double-thick triangles sewn together. The brim is made with a cut piece of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal box wrapped in more of my handwoven fabric.
The depth of the hat ended up a bit short, so I would probably make the triangles a little longer. I would also use an overlock sewing machine instead of a needle and thread! Hahaha…
Anyway, it is functional and charming, and it is my birthday gift to myself on this rainy birthday, so I thought I’d share it with you.
