Picture of How to make a hat (like this)
Make a hat like this! Originally, I wanted to make a newsboy cap, but it ended up looking more like a police hat...
Maybe, if I used a different material, it would look more like a newsboy cap. Nevertheless, try this out!...With fabric, if possible...

Materials needed:
-Any material (fabric, old jeans, old shirts, plastic bag, cardboard, paper, etc)
-marking utensil (pen,pencil, chalk, marker, etc)
-connecting tools (threat and needle, sewing machine, stapler, tape, rubber band, etc.)
-tape measure
-ruler/straight edge
-time and energy
-and whatever else you need.

Step 1: Step one

Picture of Step one
Measure your head from the end of your hair on your forehead
and the end of your hair behind your neck with the tape measure.
Include the ears and wrap it fairly tight on your head.
It doesn't matter if you use inches or centimeters.
I prefer centimeters.
I measured my head 60 cm.

Step 2:

Picture of
This is to make the band.
To make it easier on myself, I used inches for this one only.
This is the width of the band.
The length  of the band is the same as my head measurement.
Since there are six divisions of the hat, I will divide my head measurement by 6.
So, my markings throughout the band is 10 cm.
If the measurement of your head is different from mine, then the numbers are different.
If you would like a small allowance to your band, you are free to do so.

This is to make the brim.
Cut a 20 cm by 10 cm material (for my measurements).
Which is the measurement of divisions.
It may be different if the measurement of your divisions are different.
The height of the blue times 40% is the measurement of brim (4 cm).
Sketch the curves, then cut them out.
Once again, you are free to add an allowance to your brim.

I used this tutorial to make a huge policeman's hat for a giant lego head to promote our church's VBS theme this year. It was absolutely spot on! Thank you for an excellent instructable!!

Love the design :)
