- 1/2 yard of Fabric A
- 1/2 yard of coordinating Fabric B
- 1 spool of all-purpose thread
- *Fabric should be a woven fabric, can be quilting cotton or something heavier like a twill or canvas (but no super heavy/stiff canvas) – light to mid weight non stretch denim ok as well. If you have trouble coordinating for this, just get 1 yard of any fabric you like! Heavier/stiffer fabrics will make a sturdier hat. Softer fabrics will be floppier.
