I love it when you find something that is the perfect gift for a friend. I found a fleece fabric (when I was looking for something completely different) that was brown with pink and green polka dots on it, and when I opened it further it had pink breast cancer ribbons on it as well).
I thought it would be the perfect thing to make a hat for her daughter (who turned 4 this summer). Karen loves brown, pink and green and often wears clothes in those colors. Her mom died of breast cancer when we were in high school.
I used a new pattern that I found along with the fabric. I cut the fabric out for one hat and found that I had just enough to make an adult size hat as well. After I cut out the fabric, it sat there for a couple of weeks, but the good news is that it only took about an hour to sew both of the hats together. It was very easy to sew this pattern together.
If you follow the instructions exactly then the hat brims roll up perfectly. If you don’t and you forget to trim the inside edge of one brim piece, you get a brim that doesn’t quite want to stay turned up. I’m hoping Karen will forgive me for using her hat as the test model. But it means that her daughter’s hat is perfect
