flat cap

He wore it all night long!

I think I am going to yudu something on it like a skull, to give it a little something extra

See how it goes up at the side?? Is it suppose to do that? I think it's because of the way I added the brim.

Just a little lopsided on his head

I really like it when my kids wear hats!

I made a summer one for Savannah and I have been on the look out for a tutorial/pattern for Austin. I tried the bucket hat and I had a hard time with it. Totally my fault, I tried to enlarge it a little because it seamed a little small. I spent so much time on something that should have taken 1hr tops! I was so frustrated.

Last weekend I found this pattern and wanted to give it a go. The pattern was very helpful and I would not have been able to complete the hat without it.

Once again I didn't follow exactly as she said. I thought the hat looked a little big on the little girl in the photos and she seemed to be around Austins age and I got a little confused with the band part.

So I decided to forgo the band all together. By turning the edges of the hat in and sewing it closed the entire way around before putting on the brim. This made it not so tall. Where the brim is attached needs a little work. I think it is still a work in progress. At my sister in-laws suggestion I am going to put a little bit of elastic at the back.

I wonder if I am doing something wrong...because the hat looks really big on the little girl in the picture, but not so big on my little guy. It is a good thing, in this case. I just wonder because this has happened to me before with patterns I print off line. I know to check my size and make sure it is 100% when printed.

If anyone wants me to show them how I did the underside just let me know and I will put that up.

I am kind of scared when making a hat because I know it will be a little bit challenging for me. I want to try and make something like this for my little man, but then again I should wait until he is a little bit older because as of now he is not much of a hat fan. LOL! It looks good on him though.

Hats have been the hardest thing for me to make. I would have to agree, it is a size thing.

It turned out cute!! My little guy recently started wearing hats (and keeping them on!), so this may be something I have to try. When I get brave, that is!! Hats scare me!!
