Crafts – DIY Sunhat

Do you love straw sunhats in the summer, but can’t find one that is the right colour and size combination? Accessories can make or break an outfit and on hot, sunny summer days, a hat is a practical accessory. but you can’t have just any hat. A baseball cap at a summer wedding just won’t do. Nor will a hat that clashes with your carefully chosen outfit. But what do you do when the stores only carry black, white, or tan hats and you love a punch of colour? Make your own! No really. Make your own. It is very easy and inexpensive to find woven straw placemats in a variety of colours. A little patience and a sewing machine and you can have a custom sunhat that you can brag to all your friends about. If you can wield a seam ripper and sew a straight stitch on a machine, you can do this! Follow the tutorial below to see how!
