A lot has happened since the first post about making a flat cap. We have fine tuned the process and are very pleased with the product that we now have. There are a lot of steps that go into making a quality flat cap. Here is a brief overview of some of the process.
A size is selected and cut out. The interfacing is ironed on and the hat is pinned together and pressed.
The hat is top stitched. The brim is pinned on and the lining is ready to be added.
The lining is pinned and the adjustable headband is sewn on.
The final product. This hat is designed to be worn for many years.
Going back to my childhood my mother tells me that if given a choice I would always choose plaid clothing. That interest seems to have changed into decorating items and accessories. Since then I have decided to create and share tartan products with others who also have Scottish roots or just plain enjoy these colorful fabrics. All products on this site are handmade by me in rural New Brunswick.
