My Bucket Hat Attempt

I have used this pirate fabric on many other items sewed on Steve Sews Stuff.

This took me around one half to two hours to complete, including cutting, reading the directions and sewing. Not too bad for my first attempt.

I used the directions from Green Apple Cottage.

I got the idea from a Sponsored Ad from JoAnn’s Fabrics on Facebook.

The bucket hat uses around 1 yard if fabric total. (½ a yard of design fabric and ½ yard of lining or inside fabric). You could almost make the other side with a pattern too and make it reversible!

It was not too bad to sew and really one of my first circle or oval sewing projects. It is a moderate easy to sew.

It does seem this would work better with a design fabric pattern that was closer together than spaced out.

What is a bucket hat?

A bucket hat is a type of hat with a wide, downward-sloping brim. It typically has a rounded crown that sits low on the head, and the brim can vary in width and length. Bucket hats are made from a variety of materials, including cotton, denim, canvas, and nylon, and are often worn as a casual or outdoor accessory.

Bucket hats were originally designed for outdoor activities like fishing and hiking, but they have become a popular fashion accessory in recent years. They are often worn with casual outfits, and are popular among both men and women. The bucket hat has also been associated with various subcultures, such as hip-hop and streetwear fashion. Bucket hats come in a wide range of colors and patterns.

I am still learning and I plan to start making more …
