For those that took the class at CC26, I'm re writing the instructions and replacing a few of the photos. If you send me a self addressed stamped leagal sized envelope I will send you new pattern instructions.

Straw Workshop CC2007 Online Handouts

First of all. I stand corrected. I got it just backwards. All plant based hats are not straw hats, only those made from cereal grains like Wheat, Rye, Barley, etc. Therefore, a Panama hat should not be referred to as a straw hat.

Helpful Links

Basic instructions for covering buckram with straw braid.

Links, Books and Sources for straw and other plant hats, just updated.

A link to help you figure out just how much straw braid you need for a project.

Please check back I do plan to add a time line for the history of the early straw hat industries in Europe and North America.
