So how is everyone going with the Hat Sew-Along so far? There is still plenty of time to join in if you haven't already. I spent a bit of time last week sorting through fabric and patterns deciding what I was going to make.
Before you get started, you are going to need some fabric, a pattern and some good interfacing as well as a few bits and pieces, like matching thread.
The best way to begin is to select your pattern. The pattern will tell you which bits and pieces you need for that pattern. Once you have the pattern in your hot little hands, it is easy to work out if you need to go and buy some fabric, or if you have what you need in the stash already.
Looking at the list of participants, there is quite a range of different hats being made. If you're still trying to decide, here are some suggestions:
Kids' Hats, by You Sew Girl **recommended
Adults' Hats, by You Sew Girl
Fedora, by You Sew Girl **recommended
Beret, by You Sew Girl

Bucket Hat, by Oliver + S **free tutorial

Lazy Day Hat, by Make It Perfect
About a Boy, by Make It Perfect
There are also a couple of lovely baby hats in the "You Sew Girl book by Nicole Mallalieu.
I have nearly finished my first hat, I'm thinking it needs a little something extra. I will come back and show you all when I'm satisfied with it. I will also post it in the Flickr Group when I'm done. I would love it if you posted your finished hats, or even a few sneak peeks/peaks and progress shots in the Flickr Group too.
