|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? I de-contructed a pink woven acrylic skirt for the outside of the hat, and a vintage pillowcase for the inside.
What are you most proud of? That I used my sewing machine and only swore twice! (we have a rather tempestuous relationship, my Singer and I) But seriously, even though the material I chose was tricky to work with, I think the hat turned out pretty cute.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? I opted to use this woven acrylic material because it was cute but found it pretty fiddly to work with. Acrylic doesn't respond well to ironing and I had a hard time getting it to behave. I made a second hat of wool and it turned out beautifully and was much easier to work with.
