DIY Theatre Caps Vol. 3.

The previous two batches of sewn theatre caps (here and here) have been worn lots, and washed, dried, ironed (i.e. heavily handled), and are looking a little worse for wear. Time for some new ones! These were made a few months ago to congratulate M on a new job and career advancement.

The grey fabric was in my stash, and I picked up the blue and green ones when they caught my eye in the shop.

The final collection. This is probably going to be the last batch.

That was fun to sew (but repetitive). I’m not very good at making the same thing again and again. I’m always itching to try new projects!
