Intro: Trucker Hat Redo

When this gurl hits the thrifts, she sees all sorts of new trucker hats. 
It didn't occur to me until yesterday that I could do somethin' cute with one.

Step 1:

This is what I started with. 
Brand new, never worn trucker hat with advertisin' of some sort.

Step 2:

I pulled out some fabric I recently found and went to stitchin.

I discovered the easiest way to do this is to make a pattern for the center piece of fabric. 

I accomplished this by folding a piece of paper in half and cutting it in an arch down the longest side.  Then I cut it until it became the right size.

Step 3:

I used the pattern to cut out the fabric. 
I opted to keep the frayed edges of the fabric and hand stitched it to the hat. 
Then I added a bit of lace and a crocheted flower I made.

It's a pretty quick project. 
You certainly don't have to stitch the fabric to the hat and can use spray adhesive or fabric glue. 

10-4 Good Buddy!

    Cute idea! You could make them match outfits, or holidays! I think I'll try a Fourth of July hat first... Hmm... Flag patterns
