|All that was left of my coating fabric.|
I searched online for free hat sewing patterns and decided to go with the one posted by Martha Stewart on her website. It was perfect for the scraps I had since the pattern did not require a large piece of fabric. The beret was created by sewing six small triangular pieces together and finished with a 2-inch wide band.
|The template provided for head measurements ranging from 22" to 24".|
|I decided to leave the seams unfinished since the fabric did not ravel at all. But I made sure to iron the seams open before attaching the band.|
|For the band, I used my serger to trim and finish.|

I attempted to make a button using the button covering kit but the wool was just too thick so I settled for the same button I used for the coat.
I love how it fits! It's not so snug so it won't mess up my hair too much;)
