For Finley’s hat, I extended the brim by 1.5 inches à la A Little Gray and I love it. It makes the hat much more feminine and even offers better sun coverage. I highly recommend it.
I also assembled the hat using A Little Gray’s no hand stitch method because I hate hand stitching.a.lot. It worked like charm.
I used shot cotton in lilac on one side and some random hobby lobby fabric on the other.
I made the size large for Finley. Large is supposed to fit 6-8 year olds. Finley just turned 5 and the hat is snug. I guess she has a larger than average head…to accommodate her larger than average brain, of course .
Nash’s hat situation is a work in progress. I actually made his hat first. I made him a size small, which is meant for 12-24 months. Nash is almost 2, so SHOCKER, the hat is too small. I’m not sure why I decided to size down on this one…it must have been late. Oh well, let’s just call this my practice hat or future hat for baby boy #2.
I don’t love the prints on this hat. I think I will go the solid color route on at least one side next time. Don’t you think?
UPDATE: I made Nash a new hat. Check it out here.
