To make the Santa hat is not an old hat: How to Make a Santa Hat in a few easy steps is a piece of cake and it is more appropriate in quality than the hats sold in shops. It is the wrong mindset that the Santa hat that is sold in the shop is better than our designed hat. Here we will discuss the procedure of making hats which are better than the hats sold in shops because the action speaks louder than words.
The most outdated hat is made out of velvet or faux fur, but we can prepare the simpler hats with the help of paper. We can even prepare a mini Santa hat headband. We should not put all of our eggs in one basket. It is the time to entertain the legerdemain of the day off season and to learn how to prepare a Santa hat. We have to collect the materials essential to prepare a Santa hat, which comprises construction paper, red craft fur material, a sewing machine with white thread, white craft fur material, pins, a glue gun, and a white pom-pom.
Division of head circumference:
We have to cut out a strip of construction paper and we have to measure the strip to the circumference of our head. We have to measure the head with the help of measuring tape. The tape is wrapped around the hat where we want the hat to sit. The measurement taken from measuring tape will be divided by two. For instance, if the measurement of the head measured from inch tape is 56, we will consider the measurement as half of it i.e 28. If we don’t have the measuring tape, we can measure with the help of strip measured against the ruler.
Triangle drawing on a sheet of paper created on new measurement:
If we talk about the base of the triangle, we can consider it and it should be half of the head circumference. We can take the height of the triangle as per our desire. The height is measured for the tip of the hat. For an adult hat, the height of the hat should be 36 cm tall. For a child’s hat, the height of the hat should be 33 cm tall.
Drawing of a curve along the bottom edge of the triangle:
We have to tie a pencil to a piece of string. We have to hold the end of the string at the tip of the drawn triangle and then we have to place the pencil in the bottom left corner of the drawn triangle. Make sure the fans are closed while executing this step or else the drawing can go wrong.
Cutting the pattern out with the addition of a 1⁄2 in (1.3 cm) layer allowance:
Since one of the diagonal edges is already along the fold, we only require to add seam allowances to the foot of bent edge and the other diagonal edge. This is one of the important section of making a Santa Hat so we should spend a decent amount of time on making it look perfect.
Sewing the edge using a straight stitch and a 1⁄2 in (1.3 cm) seam allowance:
We have to start from the lowest point of the triangle and take it to the top. We have to match the thread color to the fabric as strictly as possible. A thread color different to the color of fabric will make your hat look stand-out. Though not for the right reasons.
Sewing the ends of the fur along with a straight stitch as well as a 1⁄2 in (1.3 cm) seam:
We have to fold the fur trim in half with the incorrect edges facing out. We have to make sure that the narrow edges of the fur match up, then we have to sew across them using a straight stitch and a 1⁄2 in (1.3 cm) seam allowance.
At last, the trim is slid over the bottom of the hat, and we will sew the bottom edge with a 1⁄2 inch (1.3 cm) seam allowance. Then we have to fold the trim at half portion by tucking the bottom raw edge into the hat. After sewing or gluing a pompom to the tip, we have to make a fur pompom for a fancier hat either sewing a pompon or making a fur ball. Make sure the sewing is done right or else the Hat can go out of size.
