Ok, I'm going to give this hat yet another go .... Hat three. I didnt' have both pieces of the red available from hat two, so selected a solid red for the corresponding fabric. I'm going all the way here ... you'd think I was back in 7th grade sewing class!
Remade the crown panels on heavy magazine paper and marked in the sewing lines (because the tissue pattern is becoming fragile). Cut out the crown and brims pieces. Pulled out carbon paper for fabric and transferred the sewing lines onto the fabric.Kind of a rushed day ... took Lilly back to her momma (Alex car is having issues); decorated MIL's door for Christmas, out to dinner
