How to Sew the Hatband:

To make the hatband, cut a piece of the print fabric 8" X 36", (or longer if you prefer.) Fold the fabric band PRETTY sides together and pin down the one long end and one short end. Stitch the long end and one short end using a 1/4" seam, or the pressure foot as your guide.

Turn hatband pretty side out through opening at the other small end. Press nice and flat. Fold edges where the opening is in and stitch closed.

The ties goes in the back or on the side depending on how you like it. Or, cut it shorter and just use it as a band with no tie. To do so, once you have cut it, over lap the two ends and hand sew them together.
