Home Sewing Tips from the 1920s - Sew a Two-Toned Felt Hat

You can never have enough hats, and this tall-crowned cloche is a "smart little hat" that is easy to sew. Ruth Wyeth Spears provides all the details you need to create this two-toned felt hat, straight from the 1920s. Which colors will you choose?

Send me a link if you sew this one up!


  1. I made this hat and finally got the post up! I LOVE it and there are MORE to come : )

    1. I love, love, love your hat! And thank you so much for describing the details of the project. So interesting that Ruth contradicted herself on the number of squares! Nice to know. And thank you for your link to my video on cutting a circle from a square (one of Ruth's cleverer tips!). :) The colors and your workmanship produced a first-rate 1920s cloche. :D I look forward to your next pix.
