Hello! I was wondering if anyone could help me making the part that flops over in this hat. I can make a simple beanie, but am unsure how to add the flop. And I would be using fleece, and not knitting it. Thanks!…

Hi there! What you want to do is make the hat longer than just fitting over your head. I suppose it would be a bit like a Santa hat, but not that long and not as thinned out at the end when you were done. It would flop over at the end naturally then. I hope that helped you! If not then I'll try and find an example! Happy sewing friend! :)

I showed this to my friend (who's helping me make it and is a better at sewing than I am) and she said that's the sort of things we've done in the past, but I don't think we tried it hard enough. We'll give it another shot though! But does using different fabric help too? Because all the images I really see of that are knitted, not using felt. I have also not found a pattern online for this type of hat. XD Thanks for your help! ^^

She stretchier and more elastic the fabric, the better the hat. That's my motto anyway! I'll see if I can snoop around the Internet for a pattern for you guys but if I can't find one, you could probably just loosely wrap a measuring tape around your head and Mark the pattern out on paper. Whoever the size of your head, half its measurement when creating the pattern. That way you can have two halfs of the pattern with a good seam. Also seam allowance for hats are a little bigger so it can account for your head shape. :)

Thanks for accepting my membership, but I'm having some trouble submitting to the correct gallery. The buttons for submitting aren't showing up. I just submitted a Halloween quilt that ended up in the Clothing folder. Am I doing something wrong, or is it the group settings?
