Cloche Hat

Standard

I bought a cardigan sweater in a thrift store bag sale just because it had some great embroidery. I tried altering the sweater first(It was a medium and I’m an XS)and that didn’t work very well so I sent it back to my storage bins while waited for a good idea. I got one the other day when I saw this site: http://www.leenas.com/English/sew_hats.html . It took about 6 hours of measuring, designing, cutting and hand sewing to get the finished, lined hat. I’m soooo happy with it!
