I love hats, don’t you? They’ve been making a big come back in recent years, and each year I obtain more and more. Especially during the summer months, cuuuuuuuuz it’s a great way to keep your face out of those aging UV rays and, not to mention, you look super cool wearing one at the beach or pool. One that I have been crushing on lately, is the Sarette Sun Hat from Anthropolgie.
So when I showed a friend of mine a DIY version of it,
she could not believe how inexpensive it was for me to replicate this baby!
So now let me show you!
- Black Sun Hat, I found one here. They also have them at Amazon.
- Natural colored raffia. You can score some at Michael Stores here or here.
- Coral colored floss.
- Yarn Needle. Or the same one used for the DIY Fringe.
- Thread raffia through the needle.
- Make 4 running stitches about 3/4 – 1″ in length,
- Then make a flower using the picture below as a stitch guide.
Three or four stitches per petal, also 3/4 – 1″ in length.
- Repeat around the entire base of the hat.
- Thread needle with floss, make four or five straight stitches for center of the flower.
Don’t worry about it looking perfect because the more imperfect the petals/flower the better!
Pretty simple, yes?
I spent less than $10 making this and I think it came out pretty well.
Pretty close to the real thing, right?
So protect that skin and look glam doing it this summer with this awesome Anthro-inspired sunhat!
