New Storage System for Hats

Hartford York Hats - Men's Makins Fur Felt Fedora - The Velour Fur Felt FedoraGreat news for those of you who don’t have a large enough hat storage system at home. Inexpensive and easy to expand as your hat collection grows, I didn’t even know they made these until I read about it on Kevin Kelly’s Cool Tool blog.

Introducing XXL Ziploc Bags WITH CARRY HANDLE. (be still my heart)

These big babies measure 2ft x 2.7ft – now, that’s a lotta hat storage.

And before you get on my back, rightly saying how you can’t just pile a bunch of hats into a glorified garbage bag and that need to store your hat flat (not on its crown) and all that, I’m so much ahead of you on this. Here’s my ingenious plan:

  • 1. Thread clothesline through the bag, side to side, once at the halfway mark and once at the top (just under the plastic zip). Secure by slipknots on each side.
  • 2. Cut out as many pieces of felt as hats you have – ensuring the material size is larger than the hat brim circumference.
  • 3. Glue a piece of felt on the back and on the front of bristol board, which you’ve cut to be the same size as the felt. This becomes your two-sided flat surface, to which you pin hats by their brims directly onto the felt.
  • 4. Poke two holes through the felt/bristol board surface at the top, and use little twist-ties to hang them from your clothesline inside the Ziploc.
  • 5. Zip your Ziploc, and admire your homemade, cheaper than dirt, double-sided hat storage system.

Please. Don’t thank me.

It’s always a pleasure,
Steve Singer
