Description

I tried a couple of these for myself because I just loved this idea… I got the idea from this original post:

http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/newsboy-cap-using-recycled-t-shirts-diy-sewing-pattern-tutorial

I upcycled a couple t-shirts and a pair of my daughters gray sweatpants and a pair of her old jeans she was tossing (very thin sweatsuit fabric, not the normal thick stuff) and I loved them!! They are fun to wear! I love the floppy softness! I did change it up just a tiny bit, I tried the 8 pieces to form the head, then I enlarged the pieces and did only 6, this makes it a little less bulky when working with the stitching at the top where all the pieces come together. Also, I lengthened the pieces just a little to make it more fluffy. I didn’t line my personal hats, but I did line the white one with a cotton blend that is for sale. And, I added an “invisible” elastic in the back, inside the lining, so it fits more than one size. My daughter has a few similar hats that she bought, so I used one of them to pattern the basic brim size/depth and widened it just a little to fit an adult and I used a heavy duty stiffener for the brim of the hat as well.

This pattern is fun and fairly easy to make! If you get a chance to try it, definately do! This one fun project can spark up your wardrobe this summer! :0)
