This is a hat I made around a year or so ago, I copied it from the popular anime called BLEACH. All of the replicas I found on the internet I did not either like or were wrong. So I broke out my sewing machine and went to the fabric store and purchased some white duck-cloth and a thinner dark green cotton material. I first measured the circumference of my head and added a few inches to get the basic dimensions for the hat. Then I studied the pattern on the pictures I had found to get the correct layout. I then traced all of the pieces I needed onto some printer paper pinned them to the green fabric and cut them out. Next I began sewing the green pieces to the rim of the hat and worked my way up aligning them as I went. I added a Sweatband at the very end just to get a little snugger fit. All-in-all to took around 4 hours to complete and is almost a perfect replica to the one that is seen in the show.
