How to Make a Curved Gnome Hat
I have made a handful of different types of gnome hats, trust me. But one question I get all the time is: how do you make a curved gnome hat? And I’ll be honest, it can completely depend on the gnome that you’re making. But, that being said, here are my favorite tips, for anyone who still has this question.
- Use a curved hat gnome pattern. If you’re using a pattern that specifically has a curved hat, you’re already one step ahead than when you were not working from a pattern at all.
- Use a floral wire – a thick one. One complaint I hear is “my hat won’t retain it’s wrinkles” or “the curve won’t stay”. The problem there could definitely be the thickness of your wire. Using a super thin floral wire may just not be enough rigidity against the fabric and fill pulling that wire straight. So, thicken-up that wire to a 14 gage or bigger for a more stiff bend.
- Use a stitch (or two) or glue your curve/wrinkled hat in place. I know this might seem counter-intuitive, because it can look like magic getting those hats to make that curve. But a well-placed stitch IS magic. Just tack your hat into the bend you want or glue those wrinkles down and then they won’t go anywhere!
This particular scarecrow gnome pattern utilizes a curved hat – but it’s trimmed to allow the straw to poke out the top. If you’d like to retain the curve that’s built into the hat, though, you absolutely can!
