Not a bad idea, and I have plenty of hat pieces- but I think I’ll go for something a little more over the top.
If I’m going to wear this at a possible Hodis hat party- it needs to stand out......maybe I’ll put some stifle fabric
On a few spots? I’ll start with some duck patches first..... then go from there.

I'm sure you have plenty of fun/period correct fabric for patching... 

Any mistakes could just be covered up with a bunch of melted wax. Wink

I mean, you could just melt a whole bunch of wax on and stick a candle on top... haha.

I’m afraid that the candle wax party days- are behind me.
I have probably 100 or more pieces of fabric from the 1800’s
And maybe a few dozen from the WW1 time period ( That’s where I get the stifel fabric from)

Candle on top might be a little......Too over the top.

Got this really cool denim scrap from Mike!
Will be using it to patch some mister freedom jeans.
Thanks again!
