Your handmade hat questions answered and five things you need to know about your handmade hat
- Can I wash my hat?
I just did chores on the farm and my flannel and corduroy hat is filthy!
Yes! Throw it in the washer on a cold, gentle cycle. Your wool hat and the cute hats with poms are not washable, but all the other ones are!
- Can I dry my hat?
I want my handmade corduroy hat to smell fresh and new before heading to the cabin this weekend.
Air drying your handmade hat is the way to go. Throw it over a lamp shade, line dry it on your clothes line or just simply lay it flat with a happy flat brim – not a bent brim.
- Can I wash and dry it?
My kids’ fleece hats are in need of some freshening up for heading back to school on Monday.
Yes! Because I know your life is busy with laundry, suppers to make and lunches to pack, not to mention your kids are maybe filthy and sweaty (love it) go ahead and throw their fleece hats right in the wash and dryer on warm while you throw supper together for the fam. The super durable hook and loop closure will hold up fine. Don’t recommend hot – just luke warm. While you’re at it throw your two-tone fleece hat in there with it – it should be just fine.
- Can I iron my hat?
I want my newsboy hat or patchwork cloche hat to look crisp and brand new again.
This is totally up to you! For my own hats after washing and air drying I take my hat and use a low heat iron and swipe the brim to make it happy and to stiffen things up a bit. Please avoid getting any hot iron on your Bound to be Creative label as it will potentially stick to your iron. To iron your brim on your hat do this: grab the back of the hat and hold it up so the brim is just touching the ironing board, then take your iron and swipe the inside of the brim. It doesn’t matter which way your hat is turned out. Repeat to other side if desired. (Do not iron your fleece hat – just had to mention – but you’re super smart and probably knew this.)
- How do I pack my hat for travel?
I’m going on vacation and I want to bring my new hat my mom bought for me.
