Gordon Ramsay eat ya heart out!!!!!!
I left this project to near the end as I wasn't looking forward to tackling it. I thought the hat would be all floppy and look a mess but I'm absolutely delighted with the result.
I'm finally coming to the end of this order. Just some flowers to make and a couple of fabric trees.
I tried my best to get my son to model this hat for me but he wasn't having it. He's normally a good sport but when he found out it was going on my blog it was a straight NO!!!!! LOLL. Stuck for a model I eventually found one. Isn't he the cutest. Beats Gordon Ramsay, at least this one doesn't swear at you. LOLL
Another reason I put off making the hat was because of the gathers, I'm not keen on doing gathers at all.
The back is fastened with velcro. The first tutorial I found had no fastening. I couldn't get in touch with the lady to find out her head size so came across this tutorial. It was very well written and illustrated and of all the tutorials I came across on the web this was the one I liked the most.
Hubby said it could pass as a graduation hat. LOLL
If you'd like to have a go at making one you can find the tutorial here and there are four sizes to choose from.
Oh and just in case you're wondering who Gordon Ramsay is, this is him.
