Change to Silk ribbon ties from back
To go along with the red, white and blue theme I changed the ties form silk fabric to double sides silk sateen 3" wide ribbon. I sewed the ties onto the hat just above the wired edge of the crown sides. One edge of the ribbon is about 2" from the center back seam. That means the center of the ribbon is about 3.5" from the center back seam. I sewed them on with a running stitch that goes all the way thru the hat. One of the most important things besides using strong thread is to make sure of your knots. That means making a second knot at the start and making two at the end. Also, do not cut your thread off close to the knot but bury your thread and then cut it off. I have hat many a knot work it way untied over the years and bonnet ties can take alot of stress.
