DIY Surgical/Scrub Hat

Featured

Step 2: Step 2: Sewing

Main body fabric = MainF
Top fabric = TopF
**Sew all edges with 1/4 inch seam**

A. Take MainF and fold it hot dog style with the wrong sides touching. Using the iron, flatten the fold along the bottom. Flipping the fabric inside out, sew along the two ends of the fabric, leaving the top open. After sewing the ends closed, flip the fabric right side out again. Iron the ends flat.

B. Take the closed end of MainF and create an 1 1/2 inch flap. Iron the fold. 

C. Create an overlap with the two ends of about 2 1/2 inches. Sew both ends down. 

D. With the fold facing the outside, fold MainF in half with the thick end on the left. Fold TopF in half with the flat portion facing towards you. Line up the two fabrics right sides together. Pin together along the edge of the entire hat, leaving the flat portion of TopF unpinned.

E. This is the trickiest part. When you get to the flat portion of the fabric, pin the middle of TopF to the middle of thick portion of MainF. Flag the extra fabric and sew this extra portion down. If confused, please refer to the pictures. I tried to provide as much help as possible. 

F. Sew MainF and TopF together leaving an 1/4 seam along the edge.
