The propellor was initially attached to a tiny motor, but the revolutions were so high that it would have been considered a lethal weapon if it had been worn with that configuration. Imagination fires the motor now.
Step 1: Pre-flight Check
-a hat pattern with six crown pieces
-a tape measure
-a propellor assembly
Step 2: Cut Hat Pieces
Step 3: Sew Sides of Cap
Sew the seams between each piece.
Open the seams and sew down each side of the seam allowance to have the seam allowance lay flat. This provides a nice finishing touch on the outside of the beanie.
Step 4: Sew the Two Sides Together
Stitch the seam allowances flat.
Step 5: Finish the Bottom Edge
Sew along the bottom edge to keep the seam binding in place.
Remove the pins from the outside and turn the seam binding to the inside, pinning it on the outside to hold it in place.
Sew around the outside of the beanie 1/4 inch from the lower edge to hold the seam binding in place. Sew again around the bottom of the beanie 1/4 inch away from the first seam.
Step 6: Add the Propellor Base Cover
Handstitch the cover in place on the inside by attaching it to the seam allowances at the top of the beanie.
Step 7: Add the Propellor
Add the washer, the first nut, the propellor, the second nut and then the wing nut, which is strictly for decoration.
Tighten the nuts so that the blade spins, but does not wobble.
