Feature Friday - T-shirt hats

You may have seen this tutorial on At Second Street or featured on U-Create a while back.  She made it look so easy.  I happen to have a little boy hat fettish, so I HAD to try it out.  I figure if I can start making my boys' hats, I could probably save some dough.  Anyhow, here is Kalleen's cute hat. 


I was dying to make a boy version.  Here it is:


I made one little alteration with the brim.  I wanted it to stand out like a baseball brim, so I traced the brim of a cap that fits him and worked with that.



I added some patches and painted them to give it a boy look.  I am nerdy excited that I made a hat!  I've never done that before!  Wahoo!


Thanks for such a great idea, Kalleen.  Click HERE to go visit her tutorial.  Thank you for reading!  See you soon!

  5. So how did you get the brim to stick out straighter? I have been wanting to make one of these for my little guy that loves hats, but wasn't sure how to make it more boyish. Any tips would be appreciated.

  8. This is awesome! You have so many great ideas...

    I have one quick question...

    Honestly, do you find yourself saving money with all your wonderful creativeness? Or do you find yourself spending more money on supplies? I'm just curious, thanks!

  9. I SO appreciate all your boy-related projects :) It seems like boy projects can be easily adapted for girls... but it's hard to adapt girl projects to work for boys!

  12. Totally amazing, but how did you get your brim to stick out like that? Did you use interfacing and if so, what kind?

  13. That is awesome! I am amazed by your skills. This is something I am definitely putting on my to do list!

  14. Ladies, the difference between the brim sitcking out and not sticking out is in the way you cut the brim. You see how mine is rounded on the inner part and not straight across? When you sew it to the hat that way it will stick out. Her brim is cut straight across, so it goes down flat. I used tagboard for my interfacing, which I think is the same as what she used. Anyhow, just trace the brim of a hat you like, use tagboard, and sew it on. It'll stick out. Hope that helps! Good luck!

  18. I loved this hat! I'm a beginner sewer, so I'm not sure if there's a simple solution, but how are you getting the brim to stand out like a baseball cap? you can email at smhansen04@yahoo.com

  20. HI, I would like to ask- is the tagboard water resistant? if not,how do you wash the hat?(I am not native speaker so maybe I just don't know what the tagboard is, or whether it's some special tagboard for sewing.
    Thanks

    1. It is not water resistant, but since posting this my friend Delia shared an idea with me. She uses a leftover sour cream container. It's plastic and makes it washable. I hope that helps!
