Kaps for Kendall - Knot Hat

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Project Pattern Link to website or photo sewing.craftgossip.com/sew-a-simple-fleece-hat/2008/12/15/ What are you most proud of? Being able to use old materials in a new project. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The purple outer fabric was sewn into a tube. I layed it flat on the table, and using my fashion ruler, drew an arc from one corner to the other, creating very pointed "devil" horns. I sewed the arc and trimmed the excess. The pink lining was sewn into a tube. I then put the pink tube around the outside of the purple one (right sides together) and sewed them together at the rim of the hat. I pulled the pink lining down , then tucked it inside the purple hat. I felt inside where the seam should be for the pink lining and marked it with a safety pin. Using my fashion ruler again, I drew a gentle arc on the pink lining, and sewed it, with them seam showing on the lining's outside. I tucked it back into the hat where the seam ultimately won't show. I took each of the pointy horns and tied a single knot...working it to make them both look even.

What you will need

Q&A with Espial Design

Jennyftb1 asked:
Could you give more guidance for the lining and cute knots at the top?

The purple outer fabric was sewn into a tube. I layed it flat on the table, and using my fashion ruler, drew an arc from one corner to the other and sewed the arc. I made the corners pointed and long so I could tie them into knots when the hat was turned right side out. the pink lining was sewn into a tube. I then put the pink tube around the purple one, right sides together and sewed them together at the rim of the hat. I turned the pink lining and tucked it inside...feeling inside where the seam should be for the pink lining. Using my fashion ruler again, I drew an gentle arc on the pink lining, and sewed it, with them seam showing on the outside of the lining. Does this make sense?
