#DIY #sewing #hat
Spouse is making hats! And I'm helping. Here is a wool tweed pillbox style hat she sewed out of some scrap wool from another project. It is lined with linen. The wool was pretty easy to work with. This a style is called a pilleus Pannonicus, or a Pannonian cap and was common in late Antiquity and the early Middle Ages.

#hat is finally finished! The last worked! Pro-tip: make your pillbox style hat out of wool. It's a much more forgiving material than linen. You have to be quite exact with the linen, thus the need for the hat last. Non-direct eye-contact in one picture.
