Necessary tools and materials for making hats
You can make hats with the basic tools & materials;
sewing machine, iron, scissors, needle, thread, awl etc.For fabric materials,our recommendations are shown in each item page.
Whether you need interfacing depends on the type of hat you make.
A band attached to inner side of the hat to protect from make-up and sweat stains.
There are special bands that are for hats but you can also use grosgrain ribbons.
When using grosgrain ribbons, first iron the ribbon to curve. This process will shape the hat neatly.
Length of the sweatband determines the hat size,
or it can adjust to the size you wish.
