I have no real need for this hat, but it looked so cool that I just had to buy the pattern and try it out. Thanks to DieselPunkRo for making some very cool and reasonably priced patterns it was very simple to cut out and put together.

Loverly job.

However you are breaking Rule 68 A, sub clause 37. That states, you have to tell us what leather you used, what thickness, what dye, thread, stitches per inch, final finish coating . . . . all that and more

 

 

 

 

:lol: :P

I know exactly how you feel. I keep looking at Tonys hats and thinking that I want one but I don't wear hats. Good job!

I did not line the inside. This is my first attempt at a hat and I didn't want to complicate things. It's slightly firm, but hopefully will break in and soften up. I'm not a hat guy, so breaking in may take years.... Haha

Haha.. The leather was some oil tanned that I got in a bulk mix from Springfield. It's about 4oz. The thread is Tiger Thread .8mm in Colonial Tan. As far as the stitching, the holes are punched according to the DieselPunkRo pattern. My hand was killing me after punching so many holes, but stitched up pretty easy and straight. My next project is gonna be a bag that has substantially more panels and holes to punch. He has a lot of cool patterns, especially if you are into steampunk.

very nice job, i always loved that hat.   i just stumbled apon his patterns too.  i really like several of them. I might buy a few eventually but i have like 200 ideas now that Tandy leather is offering thier patterns for free.  There are several steampunk patterns i want to build.  I got that journal makers oil leather bundle for Springfield leather when it was on a huge sale.   I really like the 35sf of random leather they selected.

I guess it would be useful somewhere under certain circumstances, BUT ...  I am a hat guy.  I wear one all day almost every day.  The hat must fit not only the personality of the wearer, but also the weather and event.  I have never found a leather hat to be useful, as they almost always tend to be very heavy and do not breathe, as one wants with a hat that he (she) will wear for very much time at all.  Still, it looks like a fine piece of work to hang on a peg or in a display cabinet.  ... and I love the color!

Where can I find the Tandy patterns for free? I checked the site and only see them for sale.

Yes, I also bought a few sets of the oil tan journal makers bundle when they were on sale, and will probably get more if/when they go on sale again because I need more leather like I need another hole in my head.......

Nice! Punch a couple holes on each side and use mesh eyelets, or the head will sweat.

I enjoyed making that one. Did mine in 5 oz. Horween from Maverick leather. Waterproofed and worn everyday to work. Its held up pretty well in LA weather.

 

The hard part for me was sewing around the 12g wire in the brim.

Speaking of hats, I am just wondering if there would be SOME way to duplicate this hat in leather:

I'm wanting to do this for a Halloween costume. The original is obviously felt, and the crown is just one piece. If you were doing it in leather, I think the brim and crown would have to be separate pieces, but wondering if a rounded crown like that would be possible, if you moulded the leather around a form.

very thin belly leather wet moulded over a ball shaped buck. was done in ages past. you'd need a very solid buck tho, maybe an old leather soccer football
