Wide Brim Hat (Free Bucket Hat Pattern from TEC and Serpentine Hat from Elbe Textiles) | Sew-Along Tutorial from Sewing Therapy

Hello! Sara here with a tutorial for a Romantic Wide Brim Hat, featuring the Simple Bucket Hat Free Pattern from The Essentials Club and the Serpentine Hat from Elbe Textiles. 

I always wear wide-brimmed hats in the summer and surprisingly have never tried making once. Recently I was inspired to make my own after viewing many stunning ones on Instagram, and I was so excited to find this free pattern from The Essentials Club. I love her YouTube Channel as she’s very talented and her makes are gorgeous. If you haven’t been to her channel.

For my first few wide brim hats, I modified The Essentials Club’s Simple Bucket Hat pattern (I’ll share how in the video). If you’re not a fan of wide brimmed hats, go ahead and download the simple bucket hat pattern and make that – you can never go wrong with it. But if you want to make a wide brimmed hat and don’t want to draft your own pattern, you can purchase this gorgeous wide brim hat pattern from Elbe Textiles. 

There are many many options and mods to choose from – I’ll try to list them in the video!

So if you find that your head is bare these days, I encourage you to sew-along a hat with me, which is summer’s most practical, stylish, and dare I say romantic accessory. 

These are my online fabric + sewing accessories shops.
