How to make a Cowboy Hat

Updated on September 26, 2014

Making a Cowboy Hat

Every kid I ever knew at one time or other in their lives wanted to live the life of a cowboy - and what was it that represented a cowboy to us all, and without which it would be impossible to image that a person was indeed a cowboy? Of course - it was the cowboy hat.

Now this can come in a number of styles but all have a common theme - they are high crowned and wide brimmed.
