The Fez

A few years back, I developed a Fez pattern for my Year 7 class. The "house" that I was in at school had the Fez as it's symbol. So each year we would get the Year 7's to make their own Fez and then they could wear it at all the "house" functions. It is quite a simple pattern.

Last Saturday night there was an occasion for my husband and I to use the Fez pattern again. My husband braved the hording crowds at Spotlight South Melbourne to grab some red velveteen and some tassels and on Friday night we proceeded to make the legendary Fez. Normally I would use black tassels, but there was none left ...


Photo's of our fez making in front of one of our favorite cook books, Saha by Greg Malouf. The event that we were off to was a Middle Eastern evening at a friends place and the food was absolutely divine!

So I thought that I would upload my Fez pattern to the interweb for all to enjoy!
The pattern is quite simple and can be made more sophisticated using different materials and construction methods. The pattern needs to be on A3 size paper and you can adjust it by changing the size of the pattern. It's not perfect, but enjoy anyway! And please, if you use it, post a picture for me to see!

Every time I see A Fez I think of the British comic Tommy Cooper. Am I showing my age?
