This session began by hand basting the two crown pieces together from the right side. That way it is possible to align the design in the crown and the join of the crown to tip with great precision. So the basting went in, made a line to follow when turned right sides together.
Went to the sewing machine and received a line of permanent stitching and the basting stitches were then removed.
Also did some work on the brim and by the end of this session the hats looks thusly
