BONUS! Hat Facts

  • The earliest recording of a hat is from 15,000 years ago in a cave painting in western France.
  • Theologian students of John Duns Scotus were the first to wear dunce caps in medieval times. They believed the hats would funnel God’s wisdom into their head, but they just ended up with a reputation for foolishness.
  • The tall chef’s hat has 100 pleats because an egg can be cooked 100 ways.
  • In the 1920s, Americans had a strange tradition of attacking anyone wearing a straw hat after September 15th, which was named Felt Hat Day.
  • The term “mad as a hatter” comes from actual hat makers who would go insane from breathing in the mercury fumes used in the hat-making process at the time.
  • John Hetherington, the inventor of the top hat, was arrested the first time he wore it in public for disturbing the peace as people were frightened by its tall and shiny appearance. He was dragged to court and forced to pay a 50 pound fine.

Thank you for this pattern. I needed a last minute baby gift and it turned out perfect. Your video was done very well and helpful. I had no problem finding the pattern pieces. One layer I made a navy denim with sunflowers and the other side a yellow and white seersucker small gingham check. The yellow and white was from a re-purposed man's shirt and the denim left over from an apron I had made. Love that it is reversible. Hope the picture I added turns out, so you can see. Thanks again.

The video tutorial is very helpful. So many times babies' heads are forgotten about when out in the sun and their skin needs extra protection. I'd like to sew up several of these sweet hats to give to babies in need on summer days. #BestIdeaEver

Could you please tell me what size this hat is suited for? Unfortunately my girl doesn't seem to fit the generic head sizes that most recommend. She's a little bit on the bigger side. Currently she's wearing a 54cm sun hat, do you think this is slightly larger?

love it as with the video it really shows how to do step by step LOVE IT vicki

It's a very helpful video with crystal clear instructions!
