Just in time for tomorrow’s game, I finally got together my gator hat! True, it is not made from a fabric remnant, (collegiate fabric isn’t that cheap!) but it does have a cheap-o component in its construction….I used a package of bias tape, circa 1969 it says on the back of the package, that was in my sewing desk, either a left-over from my gran, or one I bought at a yard sale. Look, it cost 25cents!
I’ve been loving this hat pattern ever since I saw an article in the June/July 2010 Sew News (page 72). I had to order the Kwik Sew pattern from Fabric.com, since the closest retailer for Kwik Sew patterns is in Winter Haven, and that shop was closed for renovations! Long time coming, but I’m loving this hat!
