It’s all about the hat

I needed a new hat. My previous hat was a conversion from a cowboy hat I bought at Wal-mart several years ago for about $15. The price was right, but the brim was really just to small to look right as a pirate hat.

I wanted to stick with something as inexpensive as possible and I found hat blanks for $24 at Jas Townsend & Son.

I used a portable steam iron to crease the hat in the style I wanted then added a button and a feather to finish it out.

    Hey, Richard! It’s me, Pam Crouch. :o)

    I didn’t know you were into pirates! I love to make costumes, and I’ve always wanted to make pirate costumes. I think even the boots would be fun to make. One year, I want to go to the Ren Fest with all of us pirated out. We went with the kids to one of the school days, but I only had time to make costumes for my older two kids.
