Hello everyone! Today I am going to show you how I made a simple beret hat for our Halloween costume.
For this project you will need
Start by measuring the circumference of your head. Then using that number (and the equation c= 2•3.14•r ) to find the radius. The radius times 2 (or the diameter) is how wide you need to make the inside hole of you hat. Then depending one how wide you want the sides to be add an even amount on each side (I added 3 inches). Adding the diameter and sides of the hat together (3+6+3) you can get how the diameter of of the top piece. Hopefully this isn’t too confusing. Once you’ve done the math you can start making the actual pattern piece!
Then make a whole bunch of other lines the same length with the middle lining up with this mark.
Then connect these dots.
Then cut out both circles.
Now cut two pieces of your fabric using the large ring as a pattern.
Time to start sewing! But before we start I recommend setting your sewing machine to zigzag stitch if your are using a stretchy fabric like me.
Then fold it in hanlf again so you have one edge with four open layers.
Stay tuned for next week when I will finally finish these costumes!

P.S. inktober week 3 is upon us!
