How To Make A Pattern From A Hat You Already Have.

Picture of How To Make A Pattern From A Hat You Already Have.
While browsing on Pintrest I glanced at a tutorial on how they made a pattern of a jacket. So I said "Yeah what about a hat?" Hat to me are complicated little things that we put on our heads to keep warm. But then again they're extremely simple. So I decided to make a pattern from a hat I already have.


Supplies:
* your favorite hat
*foam board (thick poster board) or cardboard
*sewing pins
* pencil (eraser)
*paper
*scissors
*flecce
*sewing machine
* (optional)tape
* protractor or ruler

Tape down the paper (or not)and fold the hat in half. Pin down the ear flap and the front and back. Make sure the pins go through the paper into the foam board. Once everything has been pinned remove the pins and with a pencil trace the pin holes.

Step 2: Pin The Dart

In the middle there should be a dart . Remove some of the pins on the outside edge of the hat. Starting from the inside pin the dart down, removing pins from the edge as needed. After pinning I traced the pin line that I have just created. This will help in the placement and depth of the of the dart.
