When I made the baseball hat for my friend, Addy, I got a request for another hat DIY from my friend Michelle. She wanted a customized trucker hat. She had seen this Pinterest pin and asked that I make her something marine themed.
1/4 to 1/2 yard of fabric – I bought 1/2 because I wanted to make sure I had enough in case I messed up, but you can easily do this with 1/4 a yard
Trace and cut out a paper pattern of the hat’s bill.
Cut a rectangle piece of fabric that is twice as long as the brim is.
Cut the inside curve of the bill with about a half inch allowance of fabric. Then go along that curve and snip perpendicularly to the fabric.
Fold down those flaps and glue down to the wrong side of the fabric.
Once that is dry, glue to the inside curve of the bill.
Be patient and let it dry.
Once it is dry turn the hat over and cut the excess fabric around the bill leaving an inch and a half allowance around.
Cut sections perpendicular to the bill like with the inside curve of the bill. Then glue each piece to the underside of the bill.
When finished, cut another piece to glue to the underside.
Here’s what it should look like.
And the finished product. She sent me some selfies when she got it, look at the smile!
