got turned into this little "flapper hat". This one actually fits me. Woo Hoo! I think this is the first time in my big-headed life I've worn a hat that is not too small. A very nice experience, I must say. Now I'm beginning to understand the attraction. No worries about my hair, for one thing.
I call this the "Dinner Plate Hat" because for the crown of the hat, I traced around a dinner plate on the large "butt" of those huge jeans, just below the back pocket.
And then I calculated the circumference to cut the band. C=Dx3.14 remember?
When I put it on, initially, it looked like a badly fitted shower cap in denim, so I added the scrunchie pleats on one side, flipped up the "brim" and pinned it up with a brooch that desperately needed some work to do. I must say, I'm pleased with the results, even if it does look like a scrunched up, pinned denim shower cap....
My next project will be another dinner plate hat, cut from a thrift store sweater. I have an idea about how to go about doing that. I plan on taking pictures as I go along, and posting a "How To", but only if it turns out.
Well, here's the hat. I'm feeling a little camera shy today, hence the goofy grin:
And the side views, since each side is different....
