The banded beret hat is a very simple and a delightfully quick project. Made from quilting cottons, recycled menswear or repurposed denim, choose a coordinating lining fabric. Made from wool felt or fleece, hat is unlined. Simple to construct with hidden back elastic for good fit. This construction method will introduce you to a wonderful tool – the pressing ham. Directions included for a flower & leaf embellishment.
