Die Cut Derby Hats – Hat Cut Files

Who’s ready for a day at the races? Everyone knows that you can’t spend an afternoon at Churchill Downs without proper headwear. Today I am sharing some super cute, die cut derby hats that are just what you need for your next crafty project.

Die Cut Derby Hats


While I have visited the great state of Kentucky before, I’ve never been to the Kentucky Derby. It’s something I have always wanted to attend, though! Mostly, I just want an excuse to wear an over-the-top hat!

In fact, I actually started collecting fancy hats a few years ago. Unfortunately, I have precious few opportunities to wear them. I need to start attending a church where women still wear hats to the service. Until then, at least they work nice as references for designs like this, and make lovely props for these photos.

I think these derby hat designs would would look stunning as part of a card or tea party invitation. Very classy!

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy making these die cut derby hats! I hope you have as much fun putting them together as I did. Be sure to share your results with me on Instagram!

    Thank you so much for the adorable hats. They are a perfect addition to your perfume bottles and would look really cute together in a shadow box.

    Mandee, the race you should attend is Royal Ascot. You will feel like it is Easter morning at the turn of the century and everyone is dressed to the hilt. Ladies in long dresses and huge hats, frilly sun umbrellas, and men in mourning suits. We were way way way underprepared when we went, but we were welcomed and even picked up a little at the betting window. You will see the royals arrive in a carriage. Don’t plan on bringing your camera though. This is one for your memory and not for your camera. Take the train from London for the full experience.
