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! ^_^
Enjoy!
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.

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.

how do you put in eyelets? i have never done that before XD

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?
