Step 1: What You'll Need
Then you'll need
- * a new ribbon or some fabric to make a ribbon,
- * scissors,
- * measuring tape,
- * chalk for drawing on fabric,
- * triangular ruler with 45 degree angle,
- * some pins and thread,
- * and of course - STUDS.
Step 2: Making the Hatband 1
Measure your hat's perimeter where the ribbon will be. Add to this measurement about 1,5 - 2 cm for seams.
Using the triangular ruler draw a line on the fabric in 45 degree against the grain line. This will make the ribbon fit the hat better. I didn't have enough fabric, so I had to draw two ribbons, which I sew together later.
The hatband I'm making will be about 3 cm wide. So I drew 7 cm wide fabric ribbons.
Then I sew my fabric ribbons together to make one long ribbon.
Step 3: Making the Hatband 2
Then turn it inside out and iron it flat. Then cut one end so it's straight. It'll make next step easier.
