Does anyone do hats? I've been working on a couple, and wonder if anyone else is interested?

I've sewn one so far ... have a whole lot more patterns I want to try. Just need to get a few more gifts sewn, then a nice outfit for a banquet in mid-Jan ... err ... then I might have room for a "just for fun" project.

The spirit is willing, but the mouth has written checks the hands and sewing machines need to make good on!

Yes, I DO love fabric!!

Google search for hat reviews

Not all of those will be hat reviews, but some will! I made myself a winter hat, inspired by nancy2001's, and really like it except it is a little too short. I should make myself another one.

I have done a bunch of childrens hats but no adults as yet. No one wears them too much in this country now except the winter wooly ones. I grew up in the UK where everyone still wears them to weddings.

I'm working my way through three hat designs, one of which is almost finished in planning and now ready to cut.

The other two need more applied maths, and a cooperative St. Bernard to locate the velvet for one actual hat itself. I know that the velvet is here. I just don't know exactly where in the "here" it is.

The last is for summer, and it will be made from a satiny, but not shiny, silk cotton blend, and it has a brim on it that rivals any flying saucer from just about any sci-fi flick.

I've never been much of an accessories girl, but I cut my hair into a pixie cut this spring. My head is so cold! I need to start sewing hats, but I have no clue where to start.

I'm currently making a couple of winter coats for myself -- one is a totally new colour for me so I will definitely need some kind of hat to wear with it.

I've never been much of a hat person other than toques or hoods but I want to change that -- I like to wear hats in the summer but have never been a winter hat person. Once I get the first coat done I think I'll take a break and make a hat before getting onto the other coat.

I've blocked a couple of hats from wool but have never sewn one. I have some patterns to do so but haven't yet. I'd love to see what you've done!

I just made a couple from an OOP Vogue pattern, in wool remnants from some coats I made last year. The OOP pattern is no longer on the site but it was similar to view D of V8440

I'm very, very French. I love my beret! I made it out of rayon/silk velvet, lined with china silk, and I launder it in my machine. It went missing, and I was confused, until I saw it on my younger daughter's head -- and she still has it.

Guess I need to make another!
