    The good folks at Templar Textiles in Cobblers Knob would like to introduce their latest in their "backwoods" line, Loggers Lids.

    They look neat Jon. How did you make them?

    Not too hard to make Clerk. I cut a square about 1" out of two different types of cloth. One is an old T shirt. The other is a synthetic fiber cloth that is very this and very stiff and resists stretching. The T shirt square becomes the dome and the synthetic the brim. The end of a small paint brush is used to make a hole in the middle of the synthetic cloth (it doesn't rip; it goes between the fibers) and it is set off to the side. Then the T shirt square gets a drop of glue in the center and it is stretched over the end of a slightly larger paint brush end. The the one with a hole is pulled over that and it's painted. after drying, the brim is cut round and the excess cotton is cut off the bottom side. A second coat of paint and it's done. The little guy who wears it will probably get half a headectomy as the dome has a lot of cotton cloth inside.

    Hey Jon I was wondering if you ever treid using the clay that you put in your links? My first thought was that you made the hats out of this material. I think if you roll out a small circle and then poke a small end of a brush thru the center and then bake it would come out the same.Seems like a good use of maybe the last few scraps.

    Berg, I have not tried the clay yet. Shamus tried a hat in clay or epoxy of some sort and did not like the result. I think I could do a clay dome and use it with the cloth brim with good or even improved results.

    Robin, they will fit O, I used a smaller paintbrush on one and it would be fine for HO. Tyson is probably going crazy this weekend trying to stretch cloth over a sewing pin for N :D :D :D

    No prob., Clerk! Hope the instructions are clear. I could post pictures next week if anyone is interested in making their own.
