i am missing my wool vegan anarchist cyclist hat that
i bought from orange20 in L.A.
so, i made a replacement.
i have a bunch of fabric that i'm mad at, i used that
for prototyping. to
start i made a wheel
hat from a simplicity pattern
six panel - five tries
these are the prototypes.
i found that on a small piece like a hat, very
small changes to the pattern made a great
difference in fit.
i used "bull denim" for the hatband and the underside of the peak.
yes, that is called a peak.
automotive headliner vinyl gives the
peak it's rigidity.
this may be the last of my labels.
i think most of them ended up in a parking lot in barstow.
