- Pattern pieces found HERE
- ⅛ yd exterior fabric
- ⅛ yd lining fabric

Let’s Get Cutting:
Cut out all pattern pieces and lining
Cut (4) 3” x 2” rectangles of exterior fabric
* (To make the hat fully reversible, cut (4) 3” x 2” rectangles of lining fabric as well)
Cut (1) 3” x 40” rectangle of fabric for ribbon (Or use 30” of ribbon)
Let’s Get Sewing:
Taking (2) of the rectangle fabric pieces, place right sides together and sew along one long edge. See Photo:
Take another piece of fabric and sew along the outer edge, and then repeat with a 4th piece. See Photo:
Repeat for other (4) until you have 2 halves of the hat. See Photo:
Now take your 2” x 3” rectangles and fold in half lengthwise with right sides together. Sew along the 3” raw edge. Turn fabric right side out and Press so that seam is on the center back. Fold in raw edges and sew. Repeat for all 4.
Now, taking your belt loops, starting 2 ¼” up from the bottom edge, sew onto the 1st & 3rd seam. Repeat for both sides of the hat. See Photo:
Now, place 2 hat halves right sides together and sew along outer curved edge. See Photo:
Repeat all the above steps for lining.
Now, place the lining inside the exterior of the hat, with right sides facing, matching seams. Sew all around outer edge, leaving a 3” opening to turn. Turn hat. Slip stitch opening closed. Press and edge stitch all around.
You should now have this:
If you are using a ribbon, simply place through belt loops, fray check ends, and you are finished!
If you are using fabric, you will need to make the ribbon sash.
Fold right sides together lengthwise and sew along outer long edge. Turn fabric and Press sew seam is in the back. Turn in raw edges and edge stitch, and you may want to edge stitch all around the entire ribbon sash, for a more finished look. Now, loop through belt loops and tie!
