Holiday Giveaway #6- Driver’s Cap Made from Upcycled Coffee Bag

I saved the best for last!

Back in 2010 – 2011, I made driver's caps from coffee bags that I upcycled from a roasting business that was part of our church. Each hat takes about a total of 6 to 10 hours to make, with close to 4 hours of sewing! I used to charge $110 for each hat. That makes this the most expensive item I'm giving away this week! 

 

Holiday Celebration Giveaway #6!

Upcycled Coffee Bag Driver's Cap!

 

Each hat is a one of a kind, wearable piece of art. And they are the perfect accessory to pair with any outfit!
 

My driver’s caps are made from upcycled coffee bean bags. A local roaster supplied me with the bags from their unroasted beans. I wash (and wash) the bags, treat each one to prevent fraying edges, and then set about the fun of creating hats from each bag. Each hat is unique!

If you're a coffee freak, you might be interested to know that this particular hat is made from a bag that carried Brazil coffee beans. Each type of coffee has a different sort of bag. It's so interesting!

This hat is lined with dark brown cotton fabric. The jute coffee bags can be scratchy, so I take care to line each part of the hat that may come in contact with your skin. The only thing that will touch your skin is the soft cotton.  The bill is handmade using the jute bag, which gives it just the right amount of firmness with a little flexibility. The front of the hat is hand stitched to the bill ~ so no holes from a snap pulling out of the fabric!
