First attempt...

I found a pattern online to sew cycling hats, and I thought I'd try one out. I probably wouldn't wear one myself because I'd look like a fool, but if this pattern worked out I'd make one for Mickey and possibly a few more for others. 

So here's my first attempt just in black until I got the pattern right. I didn't like the pattern from the beginning–how the top is made of four parts that taper at the top instead of being made up of three larger parts like regular caps. And also the brim is way too big, even though I traced Mickey's other hat.... Hopefully I can figure out a new pattern this weekend.
