This is a great way to learn to make a sun hat. Instructions are straightforward. Pattern is simple to print, tape together and cut out. The result is a great hat. I did not have interfacing and it worked anyway. I made a small for a teen and a medium for an adult. I made them as gifts. Thank you - very good video.
