I made mine with this Terry Cloth Fabric, and loved the way it turned out. I cut out my pattern with scissors and use a rotary cutter for the fabric. This saves a lot of time and perfectly cuts the fabric without warping the pattern. I have the larger size mat and use it to cut all of my fabric.

I use this Brother Computerized Sewing Machine from Amazon.

A small portion of the pattern will be cut off of the Brim when the pattern is printed, just connect with a sharpie before you cut.

Step 2. Cut out Pattern and Fabric

For this bucket hat, you will need 4 Brim Pieces, 2 Band Pieces, and 1 Top Piece. Some pattern pieces require the fabric to be folded to create a longer piece. I like to pay attention to the fabric grain to try to get a uniform cut without pieces being cut on the bias.

Step 3. Sew & Serge (or ZigZag Stitch) Band

Place faces together and sew up both sides of the 2 Band Pieces. Next, use a ZigZag stitch or Serger to finish the raw edges and prevent fraying. Terry fabric frays a lot and will get string everywhere if you skip this step.

Step 4. Sew Band to Top & Serge

Sew the Band Pieces to the Top Piece, insuring that the faces of the fabric are together. Next, do the same ZigZage stitch or use a Serger to finish the edges.
