Hat – Success

After a couple of failed attempts, I finally got one that I like, and will actually wear!

The pattern came from a book “Sewn Hats” by Carla Hegeman Crim:

An old torn-out pair of jeans was used for the shell.  An old bandana is the liner.  I used a flat piece of plastic clamshell packaging to stiffen the brim and some black double-fold bias tape for the band.

Looks decent enough to wear:
