Okay, let’s get to work on our 4-In-1 Bucket Hat…
1/4 yd main fabric
1/4 yd co-ordinating fabric for reverse side of hat
optional: 1/2 yd fusible interfacing if your fabric is lightweight or you want extra stiffness in your hat (1/4 yd needed if interfacing only one side of hat)
Heat n Bond scraps
Pattern pieces – ensure that your printer is not set to scale the document larger or smaller before you print :).
1. Cut out fabrics and interfacing (optional) as marked on pattern pieces. When cutting interfacing, cut pieces 1/2″ smaller on all sides of pattern pieces.
5. Clip top of hat band every 3/4″. Make sure that your cuts are less than 1/2″ long.
6. Right sides together, pin top edge of band to main fabric crown piece, matching raw edges. To mark the crown piece into quarters before pinning, I like to “finger press” it by folding it in half and then in half again and giving it a good pinch. It saves time and my home-ec teacher in high school even taught me it so it’s totally legit :).
