Haughty Hat
Haughty Hat Price: $20.00 
Level: Intermediate

Licensed Sulky Class: Yes

Believe it or not, this charming hat is incredibly easy to make. After you make the basic hat, you will be inspired to make more to coordinate with a variety of outfits and occasions. You will learn how to properly set up your sewing machine and troubleshoot your machine so that you can free motion sew successfully using Sulky's Holoshimmer metallic thread. If you haven't worked too much with binding, this class is definitely for you. We will go into detail of how to make bias strips using the parallelogram method. Then we will turn the bias strips in double folded bias tape using either Simplicity's Bias Tape Maker or a standard Clover Bias Tape Maker. Then we will complete the binding around the hat with a faux finishing technique. You will be able to apply this technique to a variety of other sewing projects. The back of the hat features an adjustable grosgrain ribbon so that it can be sized or slightly altered to fit anyone.
