True to Reid Barnhart’s promise, I couldn’t make just one of her hats! Here’re another three I made after the February class. I incorporated an idea from Quilter’s Home Feb/March magazine – pockets inside the hat band! You can find the free pattern for the QH version here: http://www.quiltershomemag.com/content_downloads/webHat.pdf
The pattern I used for these, however, was the one Reid provided in her class, which is very similar. For two of mine I used socks – the black and gray stripes, and the brillant neon colors (compliments of my daughter!). For all three I used old men’s ties for the piping, and for the brim of two of them.
In making the sock and tie brims and hat band, I stitched and flipped pieces onto a base fabric, then trimmed to fit the pattern.
Fun idea for Spring!
