Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic shaping
  • Seaming

Pattern Description:

Even though she is most famous for being the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and for her mysterious disappearance, Amelia Earhart (July 24, 1897 - missing July 2, 1937) was a true pioneer in many fields, both as an aviator and as a woman. She set a staggering array of aviation records, authored best-selling books and founded an organization for female pilots. She accomplished all this in a time when women had few rights and even less career options.

Amelia Earhart is worked flat then seamed together with the shirred panel. Stitches for the visor are then picked up from the brim and worked in the round. Instructions for several different accessories will allow you to personalize and change the the look of your hat.
