Mad Plaid Newsboy

This is my first attempt at making a newsboy styled cap. I decided to use a men's shirt (they're made from the most interesting plaid fabrics) paired with a medium weight denim for the band.

Do you remember the fusible interfacing that was too stiff for the bag I wanted to make? Turns out it is the perfect interfacing to use for cap brims!

I sew a lining into each of my hats to give them a nice finish and for a bit of interest I usually use a print fabric. This hat has a tiny floral print for its lining - so this is a definitely a girl's newsboy cap. :o)


  1. Very Cute! I am telling you- hats really look good on you! You are definitly a hat girl! Me- I am working on the idea still!

  2. So cute Katherine!! Glad you are back, broken computers are no fun. I've been MIA from blogland for a while too. It's hard to get back in the groove now!

  3. Lovely Katherine!Better and better!
