It is often convenient to hang up hats, even
"Sunday-go-to-meeting ones." To make sure that everyone will stay hung
up, and not fall to the floor to be soiled or crushed under foot, sew a
loop of narrow ribbon or elastic braid or even shoestring, to the middle
of the lining, making the loop long enough so that it will reach to the
edge of the hat crown when the loop is pulled out. This can be done and
passed over hook or nail or peg, and the hat hung over it, and even if the
hat gets a hard knock, it's a case of "sure on" every time.
