5. Assemble the brim. With right sides together, sew the short ends of the felt strip together with a 1⁄4 -inch seam allowance. Press the seam open; then topstitch the seam allowance open close to the seam, as shown above.

By turning the hat inside out, transfering the cutout pattern as prescribed and adding another circle of felt or material inside, I plan to wear it with my favorite winter coat for a bit of verve with half the effort. Thank you, Nicole. I loved the tutorial.
