Link Cosplay hat tutorial

This is - finally - the tutorial for my Link hat.
I promissed I would do tha a bit faster, but I have a lot in minde at the time so sorry for that...

Hope it can still help someone to get to his Link Cosplay! ^_^
And of course feel free to ask, if there is anything not really understandable in that tutorial,...

After discovering this tutorial years ago, it's still my go-to for when I need to make a Link hat.

ahh thanks so much for this tutorial! my friends and I are doing a group cosplay as the Four Swords Links and this tutorial helps out immensly!
I'm making a costume for myself as well and was wondering how long you make the hat.  I get the width is your head but how long do you make it?

I'm making something similar to this (A Patchwork/puppet version of BEN Drowned), I'll link it to you later if you don't mind. And, it's handsewn.

Im a girl and im still cosplaying as Link :D *cause im that awesome* but quick question, I ned help on the eyeletts part, can you just get those from any craft store?
Eressea-sama's avatar
Well, I think so. I got mine in my local craftstore and they have many types there... so I guss you'll find those in your craftstore too...?

how do you put in eyelets? i have never done that before XD
Eressea-sama's avatar
You can buy them in many places in different sizes. often there are explenations on the pack of eyelets, when you buy them. But you will need a Tool to make round holes in your fabric and you will need something to press the eyelets in. Most of the time, a hammer works fine! ;)

making this thing myself and pretty much got everything sorted, but how do you get the cap to stay on so far back on the head?
Eressea-sama's avatar
I have to admitt that I use some hairpins to fix it there. ;)
