Aviator Cap Tutorial by Cristophine Aviator Cap Tutorial by Cristophine
This is a simple tutorial on how to make an aviator cap.

1. sew the short ends of the headband together to make a ring.

2. sew the 4 triangles together so you get a half sphere and sew this to the headband

3. position the ear flaps appropriately and sew to the bottom of the headband.

I only lined my ear flaps to give them extra weight, but if you choose to line the entire hat, you will basically need to make two of these one of the outer fabric and one of the lining fabric and sew them together.



Here's my finished product:
Sorry about the skull, I had a dopey face and this was an improvement...

Here's :icontamago23:'s version. Canvas was used instead of pleather and it looks great!: [link]

This is :iconsci00:'s version. FF12 Moogle!! She made holes in the top of the cap to fit the ears through.
