Flipped | Straw to Wool Hat {DIY}

During my last trip to New York, I was in dire need of a wool hat. When you’re freezing your mind starts going crazy listing off everything you need to survive. Anyway, I seem to never have the funds for what I want. Perhaps it is an excuse for me to make something to share with all you lovely people. I really do enjoy sharing with you.

So here’s a simple hat for you to make. I grabbed an old straw hat and scraps of wool from a skirt my grandmother gave me. Sharing is in the blood.

Come back tomorrow for the Here’s the tutorial. Drop a line if you’re diggin’ this.

Hat: You know I made it, DIY

    Whoa. This is impressive. I can’t even begin to imagine how you made this hat. Beyond me. Go Whitney!

    • Whitney

      Hi Joy. I miss you! Tomorrow you will see how simple it is to make. At least it was to me. Love you.

    Hi, Whitney: You are truly something else– an extraordinary person. I like your website and all of your tutorials. I might even try to make something and I am not the least bit skilled in sewing, but you make it seem so easy! I really like the photo shoot where you took your clothes out to play with nature. I love autumn; its my favorite season. Take care. DPC

      Thank you Deborah for the kind words. I’m glad you found me. I can’t imagine you not being able to pull off one of these tutorials. I’ve always thought of you as the creative type.

  • I love this tutorial! You’re making me miss Fall. I’m in Sydney, AUS and we’re in the middle of Spring. I’m drooling over all these Fall-like posts. The cape is great as well. Thanks! :)

      Oh Spring sounds beautiful. I’m a warm weather girl, but I try to make it work when it gets cool. By the way, hats are extremely versatile.
