How to Make a Pilot’s Hat

Amanda Kingloff

Top off your little pilot’s aviation ensemble with this simple cap made from old winter gear.

MATERIALS 

  • Old winter hat, plain color
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun (with parental supervision)
  • 2 buttons

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cut two slits about 4 inches apart up the front of the hat. The top of the slits should be about 3 inches from the hat’s top edge.
  2. Trim the flap that you’ve created to about 2 ½ inches in length. Fold it in half upwards and secure with glue.
  3. Attach two buttons onto the upturned flap, one near each corner as shown.
  4. Flip the cap over and trim off excess fabric to so that you’re left with a rounded ear flap on each side.

  7. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!|

I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you!|
