How to make a Homburg hat

Discussion in 'Hats' started by Mario, Apr 19, 2011.

  1. I just found this nice little blog called 'The rantings of a mad hatter wannabe'. Looks like the lady who runs the blog usually specializes in women's hats, but she posted a little WIP-series about one of her project, the making a homburg from start to finish. She even made the block and flanges herself for the project - from cork!

    Go and see for yourself. It's well worth a look as it's all there, right up to the making of the bow and the binding of the brim.

    Part 1 (you need to scroll down to find the start).

    Part 2 (scoll down...)

    Part 3 (right...)

    Awesome Mario, thanks for posting. It's a definite keeper for sure. I may even give it a try, maybe not an homburg, but it may be helpful in trying to make a puzzle block for one of these.
