DIY newsboy cap! For engagement photos
Mastin Studio of Seattle, one of my faves from my first post, now featured on Green Wedding Shoes:
Also in my Google search I found "how to make a newsboy cap" searches, which led to several tutorials! Apparently driver's caps are super easy to make, and to explain in a tutorial!
- Here's the one that I used, on clevergirl.org.
- Here's another pattern here for a similar idea--I tried this one first and came out with a tiny, pyramid-shaped tea cozy-looking thing (I must have been doing something wrong).
- Here's a different pattern completely, but also an easy way to make a cap.
I made all the pieces a little bigger than specified, for my fiancé's big head, and since all the triangles are on the bias, I was easily able to fit them into my 24" inside band (I didn't line the hat, just used a wide twill tape inside hat band).
The best part? I used some of a piece of vintage wool, gorgeous stuff, nice quality, that my mom got at Goodwill for $1.99! It didn't take much fabric and feels really soft and nice. It's a black and olive tweedy, herringbone-ey thing.
Anyway, here's how it turned out!
