I have been selling these hats for a while here but have decided to teach you how I make them! This pattern and tutorial is for my helmet hat. This unlined hat is composed of a base with the surrounding leaf shaped pieces appliqued on. The leaf pieces are quilted with thread. The pattern/tutorial shows you how to make a HELMET HAT that fits a 22 to 24 inch sized head. This helmet hat was designed to be made from upcycled/recycled fabric from sweatshirts or t-shirts. It gives you a chance to reuse those sweats and tees you have around the house. However, you can use most fabrics with this pattern/tutorial, new or old. This hat is so super warm if you make it with a sweatshirt; it covers your ears and the front leaf piece goes over your forehead pretty nicely. Made form a t-shirt, it gives you a lighter option for warmer weather if you want/need to cover your head. There are so many different options in terms of colors and fabric which make this hat a great versatile piece.
