Pashmina Suleyman (below, in the only clear photo of her known to exist) and her partner Kutchima (AKA Koochie Mama), the famed Uzbeki spies, wear these to blend in with the San Francisco natives during intelligence-gathering missions. They are often mistaken for wizards, but that is silly because wizards aren't real.

You COULD, of course, wear a hat of this style if you were dressing up in a wizard COSTUME. That would be silly too, but in a good way.

Step 1: Tools & Materials


  • a half yard of some fabric or other
  • a half yard of stiff interfacing
  • a small amount of polyfil or other stuffing
  • optional decorative trim
  • thread

  • sewing machine (you could sew by hand if you had to)
  • scissors
  • measuring tape
  • pins are helpful but not vital
I put on my robe and wizard hat:p
Wizards? Not real? ='(<br/><br/>*burns my ash wood staff*<br/>*throws out my wizard robes*<br/>*yells at a poster*<br/>I BELIEVED IN YOU, GANDALF! YOU LIED TO ME!<br/>*kills self*<br/>
Aw jeez, *another* Gandalf-belief-loss paraphernalia-destruction/suicide. That's the third one this week, someone really ought to do something...<br/>
is there actually any cultural significance to the hat? or just being silly?
No, no, we are just being silly. The Uzbeki bit is random, we just wanted somewhere Far Away to pretend to be from, for a fancy-dress party we attended.
ah. pretty much figured lol. nice instructable though!
Thoroughly ridiculous! I approve!
+1 That is silly and pointless I LOVE IT
pointless? pointless? do you not see the point, right there on top of the hat?
She's got a poi... I mean, she's got you there.
Haha, cool! Would go great with KaptainScarlet's (something like that, I think that is how you spell his account name) magical wand thing. Great job Rachel!
