Description

A cap refashioned from a pair of plaid pants with a rainbow-ish lining inside. The pattern is from a Japanese hat pattern book which unfortunately does not have an English title. For more info about this project and more photos, check out this post on my blog.

Material Notes

Brown glen plaid cotton with a little spandex, reclaimed from an old pair of pants. Reclaimed buttons, covered button, and a bunch of different linings.

    Oooooh, I love it! I really appreciate the rainbow lining, too! Did you use cardboard for stability?

      Thanks! Sorry, I did forget to mention that. I didn’t use cardboard- I used a very heavy interfacing called Flexiform. It’s about the thickness of craft felt, but stuff. It’s not ideal; I’ve found better interfacing for hat brims in the past, but it works okay.
