Alabama hats

As soon as I saw the cover of Natalie Chanin’s new Alabama Studio Sewing + Design, I knew I’d be making one of those hats on the cover.


These are a perfect little project to try different embellishment methods.

I ended up using the child sized pattern, the adult sized hat seemed impossibly large. Both of these hats are made from thrifted tee shirts. The stencil is June’s Garden. I’ve given the brown hat to Katie and the blue hat is for a friend…next one’s for me!
