Be stylin’ by creating your own look! In this virtual class students will learn to make their own baseball and trucker style hats. You will learn the basics of hat making by designing your hats, cutting the patterns, sewing, and individualizing your hats. This class is not appliqueing on existing baseball hats; we will make our own from scratch! Basic sewing skills are required (knowing how to thread a machine, spool a bobbin, and sew a seam are enough!).
