As I was reading blogs today, I came across this one from At Second Street. I knew I HAD to make one. She is so creative and did such a great job! Reaching into my trusty bag of old t-shirts that I use as scraps for projects, I found a blue one (pretty identical to the color she used).
I did my roses a little different too, because after sewing the circles for the top of the hat, I realized I had made it too big and after cutting off the outside, I had a nice long strip of trimmed material that I used to make the roses. I also had some buttons that I liked so I attached those to the flowers.
I love this hat! It's lightweight, stretchy, and funky. I am going to make some in different colors to wear, because on the weekends I hate having to get up and do my hair (otherwise it sticks out everywhere!) Mine is not nearly as great as hers, but I don't think it's bad for a first try!
And then I thought I'd make my baby girl one for practice - I didn't end up liking the colors I put together, but it still turned out cute. I didn't get any pictures of her wearing it until she fell asleep, and since she fell asleep with it on I took a picture of that ;)
