Fila- Yoruba Style Hat


These hats are pretty simple to make and do not take much time. It is a little frustrating tho..I will admit, because you are sewing in a circle…and if you are new to sewing and you have done sleeves…you know what I mean. I have to thank my friend Iya Adeirawo Origunwa for giving me her own personal directions on how to make the Fila. And if you would like to know, I can easily put up directions on here! 🙂

Anyways- I have started making the Filas in African wax print material and I have a few different types.  If you like them, let me know, easy to make and I can sell them for 15-20 bucks depending on the material. I have a LOT of different material, so if you want to see pics of the different designs, just tell me!
