Free hat pattern preview on facebook



This is a HotPatterns free pattern that will be on fabric.com soon. I think it's really pretty but I wonder is it too fancy? I was thinking I could use a hat today and I think I'll try this out.

Awesome - I love it! Nice brim. A perfect hat for the sun I think it can be as casual or as fancy as you want to make it. I'll be looking forward to trying this one. Thanks for the heads up!

I think choosing the right fabric can totally change the look. I can see this as a garden hat in a bright, flowery fabric. In fabrics that mimic the drawing, it could look quite elegant. A satiny ribbon bow...creamy fabric. Nice.

I'm in great need of a hat but the fabrics confound me. I'm sure fabric.com will make suggestions... hah!

Love it! I don't think its too fancy at all, it could be really posh in wild silks or funky in jazzy cotton prints or working in the garden in denims.

I love this and think it might actually look good on me. With my big old head, it's tough to find a flattering style.

That is a cute style!
Although if you're looking for something less fancy (although I think the "fancy" would be more in the fabric and embellishment anyway) Wild Ginger's "Wild Things" program for accessories is free. (On the assumption that patternmaking software is addictive, I suppose.)

I think it would look nice in a light tan linen with black ribbon accents too.

ETA: that's what the drawing suggested to me but I have no idea if linen could be used!! I guess the pattern will tell us how to stiffen the fabric appropriately??

That's a cute pattern!
