Making ANZAC hats


The Guides  enjoyed making this slouch hat. Things did get a little hair raising but nothing a touch of the Glue gun could not fix.

Materials:

•  scrap felt

•  long gold bead to represent badge

•  needle and thread for stitching it together

•  leather strip for chin strap

•   narrow ribbon for brim.

Instructions:

1. Cut from felt—two crown pieces and one brim.

2. Stitch the two crown pieces together, using either back stitch or overcasting stitch, leaving the flat side open.

3. Turn the crown inside out (stitching inside).

4. Stitch brim to crown using either back stitch or overcasting stitch.

5. Turn up one side of hat to form slouch and sew the bead in the middle to hold in place.

6. Push crown down in middle.

7. Add leather strap underneath to form chin strap and ribbon for hatband.

Altered from ‘Aileen Anvey, a Guide Leader from  Queensland.

We found that on one camp the Guides enjoyed pinning this slouch hat to their camp hats. Another time small cork pieces were used for it to become a swaggy’s hat!  However when they tried to attach pieces of feathers we all learned new expletives.  The Glue was hot.  Eventually someone thought of using a pin to poke and direct the glue over the fluffy feather bits.  These hats really looked quite effective actually.
