I had an old Singer sewing machine I picked up from a garage sale for repairs on clothes and hemming pants. I had no idea where to start, so I printed off a free pattern from the oh so many options provided online. I took a couple of days and made the hat. It was no different then every other welding cap out there. So I decided to design my own hat.

After my children came into my life, I decided to sacrifice my income for me to be a stay at home mom to raise these 2 beautiful children. The hats started in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada in 2006 right after our son was born. I have never been a sit still kind of girl, I am always doing something whether it be cooking, crafting, going for walks, taking the kids to the park, or helping others, so making the perfect welding cap was right up my alley. I have always enjoyed a creative challenge and this was going to be one hell of a challenge.
