1. Print this template out to a desired size and cut around the outer edges. If you print this template out the maximum size is only 7 1/2" or so. You will need to blow up the image if you plan to have it fit an adult size head. Printing on thicker paper is ideal because you will be tracing these onto fabric or a paper bag.
The one labeled "brim stiffener" trace onto a thicker paper. I used a sturdy postcard.
3. Cut them out.
* TIP * After you cut out the pieces, and if you decide to use a brown paper bag like I did, I recommend crumpling each piece in your hands to tenderize the material a bit. It will be easier to work with. Otherwise brown paper bag can be quite stiff.
4. It made it easier for me to draw in the seam allowance on each panel when it came time to sewing them together. I recommend folding along the seam allowance by making creases.
8. Now the fun part. Decorate it however you like! I used an old earbud cover from a set of head phones I had, and filled it with paper stuffing to create the button. Black glitter paint was used to give the hat some sparkle and a distressed/weathered leather look.
