Hot Tip: How Reshape a Straw Hat

Fear not, crumpled hat-wearers of the world!




I've been keen on picking up more straw hats to wear this spring.  So I was excited when I recently acquired a pretty little number from Sammydress!  However, it was unfortunately a bit crumpled when I pulled it out of the bag.

I spent about an hour being sad about the hat.  I mean, I really wanted to wear it, but couldn't see how it was possible in its rumple-y state.   Then, I suddenly remembered ... Google :P  There was no reason I should let a good hat go to waste, and it turns out there's a handy-dandy way to fix it.



STEPS TO REMEDY A CRUSHED HAT

# 1 Wet a washcloth
# 2 Place it over the brim of your hat
# 3 Iron the washcloth (medium-high heat)
# 4 Repeat steps until your hat is sufficiently flat


How to reshape a straw hat

And most importantly, # 5- Wear your hat like a boss :)

  3. I have a turquoise straw hat that is seriously crumpled and sad looking. I pretty much sat on it and never thought it could be fixed. So thanks for the tip!

  4. Great tip! I also spray mine with starch (like drench it) then let it dry and shape from there. I will have to try this tip out though :)
