With the smokin' hot weather here, I decided it was time to make a nice breezy cycling cap for myself. I used this great tutorial from Curiously Crafty with just a couple of modifications. The instructions were really easy to follow, but of course, I had to go changing things. I only made it single layer for coolness instead of lined, so I had to make sure my seams were at least a little bit finished. (I really could use a serger.) I made the back panels from some nylon mesh that I salvaged from an old shoe bag I found at the back of our closet. And, I added elastic to the back so it would fit my head better for riding. It would have been OK without the elastic if I were just going to wear it casually, but for riding I wanted it a bit more snug. The bill was cut on the bias just for fun really and the bottom side of the bill is black to keep glare down.
