This hat is a gift for my mother in law who grows vegetables as a hobby.
I wanted to thank her for always sending us delicious organic vegetables our family loves!
I chose a linen / cotton gingham fabric, thick enough to protect the face and neck from the sun, yet light enough to stay cool.
The linen will let out the heat from within.
I used my rolling hem foot for the first time to do the hem on the bottom. It was a bit challenging, especially because I was working on a curve, but it was well worth it!
A sturdy polyester batting is inserted in the brim to keep its shape.
