advice on cutting a hat? - February 10th 2018, 07:19 PM

so i recently bought a hat for the sole purpose of cutting a bite mark into it, kind of like in this hat:


it's a nice, camo hat and it'd be cool if i didn't completely ruin it in this process, so i was just wondering if you guys had any ideas on what the best way to go about this would be?
there's not much on google about cutting designs into perfectly good hats for some reason.

i was assuming i would just trace the bite mark on it and then cut right through the brim, but i want to be able to sew it up afterwards so it doesn't look like the arts and crafts project that it is. or if not sew it, at least be able to make sure the fabric stays on the hat and doesn't shred or anything. would it look too messy with this method? also i don't know if even my strongest scissors could cut through the brim.


i don't know what i'm supposed to do

Hey Jess,

I'm no expert, but I am a high school dance teacher, so I spend quite a lot of time working on costumes. A couple of suggestions... first, definitely consider getting some sewing scissors if you can (like these). If you try to cut the hat with regular scissors that have already been used on paper (or anything except fabric, really), they're going to be too dull from their prior usage, and it's going to make it difficult for you to make a clean cut. Secondly, rather than sewing afterwards, I would recommend Liquid Seam Sealant/Fray Check (I use this). Its way less effort, dries completely clear, and makes sure that your fabric won't fray.

Good luck with your project!

Best,
Katrina

that helps a lot! i somehow forgot that sewing scissors exist in my very own house didn't even think about that. i'll look into getting some of the seam sealant as well.
thank you so much!

There are a lot of things a woman can do to her hair, luckily. She can cut it short or leave it as long as she wants. She can have it straight or curly, in black or blonde color or have it in whatever style that she wants
