Denim Sun Hat by E-Derby Denim Sun Hat by E-Derby
This is my very first hat! I just completed it this weekend. Once I get the hang of how constructing hats is supposed to go I'll begin adding my own designs (embroidery, applique, beading, etc.) to them. Man it's great to work with fabrics & yarns & embroidery floss.  Fibers = Deliciousness!

This hat was made in two shades of denim and is fully lined. The buttons on the fabric flowers are self-covered. This project had a yum factor of about 9 for me. It lost a whole point because I had to redo the crown several times to get it to look proper. Even so I learned a great deal in fixing the problem. *happy sigh*

I LOVE this! Did you use a pattern or make your own?

I used McCalls pattern #6450. The McCalls site has it on sale today for $5.99, but I discovered that my local JoAnn Fabrics store has great sales every every month or so! Sometimes I can score multiple patterns for $1.99. Pretty cool!

Oh yes, all Joann's have those sales :) I think I'll keep my eyes open for the next one and quite possibly get that pattern. Thank you!

Very cute! I used to wear bucket hats like these all the time...but they got too small, and I haven't gotten a new one since. From the looks of it, you did a great job with the construction- seams appear even, the crown is well shaped and the flowers are adorable!

Thank you! Though this may be too structured to be a true bucket hat, since I used a fairly heavy interfacing on the crown and brim. I love the flowers too. :nod:

You're welcome :) And I understand what you're saying; I wasn't sure what else to call it, since it made me think of a bucket hat.

True. It has the round, close-fitting crown of a Cloche with a hugely extended brim (actually two brims); a polyglot of a hat really.

Just like your bucket hat, it's lovely to wear. :)

Mmm...I love cloche hats (I have one, and my grandmother has one that her mother wore back in the 20s; it's still in near-mint condition!) And I'll bet it must be fun to wear :)

Lovely that!

Just checked out a library book that explained why I had such trouble with the crown. Now I can avoid it altogether in future. Life is good!
