Let the hat dry overnight and try it on in the morning.

Shaping A Straw Cowboy Hat

How to draw a straw hat easy
  • 1Feel for the shaping wire. The shaping wire is a thin, malleable wire that runs around the circumference and is inserted at the edge of the brim. Straw cowboy hat brims are either pre-shaped or made with a shaping wire. The wire may be woven into the straw or covered with a decorative edging.
  • You wonât be able to shape a pre-shaped straw hat made without a wire, as the methods used for other materials will damage the straw.
  • 2Shape the brim as you want it to look. Bend the wire in the hat’s brim until it takes on the shape that you’d like it to hold.XResearch source
  • The shaping wire is made to be reshaped more than once, so donât be afraid to experiment with different looks.
  • 3Avoid re-shaping the crown of the hat. Straw cowboy hat crowns are pre-shaped by the maker. You wouldn’t ordinarily need to shape the crown unless you want to exaggerate a crease. Since there is no wire in the crown, attempts to alter its shape will only damage the hat.
  • More complicated reshaping or re-blocking of a damaged crown should be done by a hat maker.

    Which Part Of The Straw

    The part of the straw used for platting is that part of the stalk which is above the upper joint that part which is between the upper joint and the seed-branches. This part is taken out, and the rest of the straw thrown away.

    But the whole plant must be cut and bleached because, if you were to take off, when green, the part above described, that part would wither up next to nothing. This part must die in company with the whole plants, and be separated from the other parts after the bleaching has been performed.

    How To Sew Straw Braids Together

    Stitches must never show on the right side Never use more braid than is absolutely necessary only lap the rows just enough to sew firmly and stretch enough to take out all possible fullness from the inner edges. To join braids that are of the insertion kind, and do not lap nicely the lacing is really flat slipstitching, weaving the needle back and forth into the edges of the two braids held in correct position together.

    British plait is usually joined by making the several rows of plait overwrap each other a little, and then stitching through the two overwrapping pieces with a needle and thread. The surface of a hat or bonnet joined in this manner consists of a series of ridges, and part of each row of plait is concealed by that next above it, so that an unnecessarily large quantity is required to form a given extent of surface. Leghorn plait is formed in such a manner that it may be joined without this loss, the edge of one row being, as it were, knitted into the edge of the other in such a way that the pattern may appear uninterrupted, and the line of junction may be almost invisible.

    The work is done entirely by hand, the use of the sewing machine being impossible in plait-sewing . Its best to sew the straw braids together by hand so that the hats and bonnets may be readily unsown without injury, and made up again into other forms, suitable to the prevailing fashion or fancy of the wearer .

    How To Dye Straw

    How to Draw a Pirate Straw Hat

    Straw may be dyed, for ornamental purposes, of many different colours. Blue is given by a boiling-hot solution of indigo in sulphuric acid yellow, by decoction of turmeric red by cochineal, salt of tin, and tartar. Brazil wood and orchil are also employed for dyeing straw.

    Many valuable patterns have been produced by mixing the white straws with others dyed. Of late years beautiful colored plaits have been produced of the newest colors, viz., mauve, magenta, blue, brown, etc. Brown and gray are now in demand to a great extent both by men and women.

    Hats or bonnets may be dyed black by boiling them three or four hours in a strong liquor of logwood, adding a little copperas occasionally. Let the bonnets remain in the liquor all night . Spotted or discolored straws are dyed either in pipe or in plait.

    Whole Straw Or Split Straw

    Straw for Victorian straw hats and bonnets was either used whole or split before braiding. Some straws are plaited whole, being merely pressed flat to facilitate the working. Others are split into four, six, or eight strips.

    Whole straw is used for all except the fines work. For this latter, split straw is used. The plaiters work up the material in a damp state, either into whole straw or split straw plaits. Split straws are prepared with the aid of a small instrument having a projecting point which enters the straw pipe, and from which radiate the number of knife-edged cutters into which the straw is to be split.

    In plait made of split straw, unless two splints are laid together with their inside surfaces towards each other, as in the patent Dunstable, it necessarily happens that the face of the plait exhibits alternatively the outer and inner surfaces of the straw, which differ from each other in colour and gloss. Articles made of split straw are also inferior to those of whole straw of equal fineness, in pliability and durability.

    I dont like the look and feel of split straw for straw hats and straw ornaments therefore I used whole straw for my hand-braided straw hat.

    How To Use A Hat Stretcher:

    • Insert the hat stretcher into the hat.
    • Turn the knob clockwise. This will start moving the wood pieces further apart to begin stretching.
    • Leave the stretcher in for 24-48 hours to allow for proper stretching.
    • The longer the stretcher is inside the hat, the more the hat will stretch.
    • If you want to make the stretching process go more quickly, you can introduce some steam from a boiling pot or kettle to the hat and stretcher.

    There are many ways to use a hat stretcher. Some are simple like the hat stretcher being placed in a hat for days to stretch it. Some are a bit more complicated, using the steam from boiling water and a blow dryer to size and shape the hat.

    Please be aware that hat stretchers are not going to make a huge size difference. They normally can stretch a hat another ½ to 1 size at most. So, you do need to pay attention to size when shopping for a hat try the hats on. Only rely on hat stretchers for small size adjustments.
