This tutorial is to make Yamuraiha’s hat from the anime series, Magi. You can also use this tutorial as a general guideline to make a witch styled hat.
Look at this beauuutiful Laaaady <3 She made a wonderful Yamuraiha!! You can make a hat like this one by following my tutorial!
Thin black fabric (polyester)
Wire + wire cutter
First fold your black fabric in half. You can also iron it to get the creases out.
Draw an oval approximately two feet wide, or more depending how big you want the brim of your hat to be. Use sewing needles to pin the two layers of fabric together to prevent any slipping when you sew.
Cut out the oval and leave some excess fabric around the edges to be able to sew the fabrics together.
Sew along the line.
Cut a smaller oval in the middle for your head. Test to see if your head fits in the hole, and adjust it to get the right size. The fit should be somewhat snug.
Next, flip the entire thing inside out.
Straighten and pin the fabric together again. Then, sew about half an inch from the edge along the brim of the hat.
Make sure to leave a small gap because you will need to insert your wire into this area.
Get your wire and measure the outer most part of the oval and cut it. If your wire is thin like mine, fold and double it up.
Remember the open seam area? Insert the wire and thread it all the way around the edge of the hat, then evenly spread it out.
When the wire is all the way through, bend the wires together and sew the seem shut to prevent the wires from poking out.
Next, get more fabric to make the pointy part of the hat. Fold the fabric in half and draw a triangle. Match the length of the triangle to the circular opening of the brim of the hat. Then, sew the sides of the triangle.
You can also make it so it is sewn on only one side by using the fold of the fabric.
Flip the triangle inside out.
Now comes the tricky part. Imagine a spiral running up the triangular part of the hat. Pinch the edge of the fabric while pinning a spiral shape up to the tip of the hat.
Sew where the pins were. Here are more angles of the spiral look.
Now insert the wire through the spiral of the hat. Remember to double up the wire if it is too thin.
Thread the wire all the way through to the top, then pull and even out the fabric.
Cut the end of the wire and sew the hole shut to prevent the wire from popping out later.
Next it’s time to sew the two pieces together! Place the triangular part of the hat through the hole in the brim of the hat. Everything should stick out towards the bottom. Pinch and pin the fabrics together and make sure the alignment is to your liking.
Sew the hat together and trim the excess fabric.
There you have it! The finished product!
I know it might be a bit confusing, so let me know if you have any questions!
