Paint Your Letters for a One-of-a-Kind Sorority Hat

Paint Your Letters for a One-of-a-Kind Sorority Hat

If you can do these things, you can make a sorority hat like the one shown above.

Directions for Handmade Sorority Hat (Kappa Delta Sample Hat):

(Actually, you must buy a straw hat-mine came from Target-You just make the "medallion" patch)

From paper make a basic shape pattern for your "medallion". The sample hat has an oval shape.

Use your pattern, to cut out 2 from light colored fabric. You can use pinking shears for a zig zag edge as shown in the sample or just use regular scissors.

Draw your Greek Letters on paper. Make the outline dark with a marker.

Place your light colored fabric over the letters so that you can see the letters through the fabric and draw letters on the fabric with a pencil.

Use acrylic paint to paint your letters.

Sew back & front of oval "medallion" together with 1/4" seam allowance. (you can use a machine or just a needle and thread)

On the back side of your fabric oval, use sharp scissors to cut an small opening (only on the back) Stuff a little cotton or fiberfil stuffing through the slit to make your fabric "medallion" puffy (3D).

Use a glue gun to attach the sorority fabric oval to your hat.

That's all there is to it!
