Circle Skirt From An Old Sheet. Five Minute Brimmed Beanie. I have a fun quick tutorial for you today. It started out as an experiment. I saw $1 cuffed beanies at Walmart and wondered if I could add a brim to them to make them look a little bit like these Colombia brand ones. It wasn’t perfect but turned out pretty cute.

It really does take just a few minutes. Here goes. Take your $1 beanie. Cut out a brim from a plastic yogurt container. Cuff the hat how you want it and pin around one side to keep it in place. Leave the other side open and slip the bill in. Now pin this side closed as well. Pushing the bill so it protrudes straight out and using this stitch… Stitch across the top of the bill or right above it. This first time was okay but I wanted to fix the sides. And that’s it! See how the cuff goes all the way around just like the original? My oldest wanted to try it on too. .MY DIY PROJECTS AND TUTORIALS. Rostitchery: convertible/infinity dress.
