It's probably obvious that I am obsessed with the tribly right about now. I just learned that word btw. For those of you who don't know, a tribly is a fancy word for a fedora ... but how much cooler do you sound if you say tribly? I wore a tribly (well technically this may not be a tribly, but it's a fun hat) on my honeymoon. You also might have seen one hanging up on the taxidermy coat hanger I made. I have been wearing a tribly nonstop this summer because it's only been about 116 degrees ... no really it was 116 today here in AZ ... ick.
But on a happier note ... when I ran across this Classico Fedora (above) the other day at Anthropologie I was instantly in love. In a rare moment of self-control, I didn't buy it. I paused for a second and thought, "I could make that." And you know what ... you can to. Here's how.
With your needle and cord, sew the pattern you see in the Anthropologie photo. I recommend threading the needle halfway down the length of the cord, so you are sewing two pieces of cord at a time. I also recommend finishing one patchwork section at a time, rather than weaving the cord around the hat. When you are done sewing the pattern, remove the current ribbon around the hat. Wrap a pice of your navy ribbon around the hat and glue in place.
