Tutorial: Newsboy hat by Destinys-spirits Tutorial: Newsboy hat by Destinys-spirits
Another tutorial from myself!

This is how I made my hat, The patterning took trial and error but from then on it was simple.

I hope this comes in handy for anyone, please let me know if you use it and if you see something which you think is wrong, please do let me know.
Any other questions, feel free to ask!

My hat lacks a buckle I know, it's on my first version of the hat which was store-bought and modified (INACCURATE!) and I've lost it. When I find it I shall take the buckle from that and sew it onto this new hat, but for now - unless I find a cheap little buckle, this hat shall be buckleless!

Your tutorial is really useful, and helped me make my hat for my cosplay. I've finished everything except for the peak, in which I have to ask: can you elaborate on how to make the peak stay up when you sew it on?

THANK YOU FOR THIS
I'll probably use this for Kotone's hat, but with more fabric, and I'm going to build it on the top of a baseball cap and stuff it with stuffing.

I used this tutorial to make the hat for my Naoto cosplay. Very easy to follow and it makes a good hat (even if it does like to pull on my wig from time to time)

Finally! Someone who explains how they made this hat! I'm going as Naoto for my first convention and the hat is pretty much a MUST. How much did the fabric cost you?

Ahhhh that's awesome! What an awesome first cosplay, I highly approve :D
Uhmmm... That is a very good question... It should cost no more than $10. I made this hat before I started keeping track on costs so I can only give a rough estimate I'm afraid D;

Have lots of fun at your first convention :D

If you had used a heavier interfacing on the inside of the cap before you sewed it together you probably could have got it as stiff as the one in the picture.

Cheers! But I purposely used lightweight interfacing because I'm not really a fan of really stiff hats unless it's like a military hat or something! Personal preference I spose.
