Step by Step


Step 1 - Refer the hyperlinked pattern on Mikinoos Youtube video.
Cut out 1 top crown, 2 side crowns, 2 hat brims from the each two different fabric, and 2 hat brim interfacing. 
When I need to distinguish the fabrics for further explanation because of the two different fabrics used, I will call simply brown fabric, and white fabric to reduce confusion.














Step 2 - Place interfacing on wrong side of brim fabric and iron press on right side of fabric  the interfacing will be attached to fabric. Interfacing on only brown brim fabrics.
Be noted that because the brim fabric is thick cotton I pressed right on it, but change heat level and place white cotton fabic between iron and the fabric if the fabric is senstive to heat, and recomend to follow interfacing instruction on your selection of interfacing. 





















Step 3 - Place two side crowns together with right sides facing in. Pin and sew along the short sides, sewing 0.25 inches seam allowance, and press seams down to both side. Repeat for the side crowns of white fabric.








Step 4 - Place the two brims together with right sides facing in. Pin and sew along that short edge, sewing 0.25 inches seam allowance. And then press seams down to both side.  Repeat for the brims of white fabric.











Step 5 - Make notches. Fold side crown in half, and fold top crown in quater, and mark each center with pen or by tiny little snips. Repeat for the top crown and side crown of white fabric.








Step 6 - Place the side crown edge on the edge of top crown with the right sides facing in, matching with notches and sewing lines. Clip and sew along that edge, sewing with 0.25 inches seam allowance. and snip cuts to the seams. Repeat for the top crown and side crown of white fabric.





Step 7 - Press seams down towards side crown, and sew along the seam. Repeat for the crown of white fabric. 









Step 8 - Make notches. Fold the brim in half, and mark each center with pen or by tiny little snips. Repeat for the brim of white fabric.





Step 9 - Place the small circle edge of the brim on the edge of side crown bottom with the right sides facing in, matching with notches and sewing lines. Clip and sew along that edge, sewing with 0.25 inches seam allowance. And snip cuts to the seams. Repeat for the crown and brim of white fabric.












Step 9 - Press seams down towards side crown, and sew along the seam. Repeat for the white fabric.






Step 10 - Now, you shoud get one brown hat and one white hat to assemble. 







Step 11 - Place the two hats together with the right sides facing in, maching notches and sewing lines. Clip and sew with leaving opening gap, and snip cuts to the seams. 








Step 12 - Turn it right side out through opening gap.




Step 13 - Iron the hat to make a shape, and sew along 0.75 - 1 inches (allowance for wire) from the edge of the brim. 



Step 14 - Fold the tip of wire for put it through the gap smoothly. Put the wire through, and cut with leaving a bit of excess of wire.






Step 15 - Twist both the wire ends together. Wiggle and put the twisted wire a bit futher in away from opening gap, so it can make close off the opening gap easier.
Sew and close off the opening gap.





















Finished, good job~
