Those hats are just adorable! I've been keeping my eye out for a cute pattern that I think I could handle making. My granddaughter ( my only grandchild) just turned 1 yr old this past August so I'm hoping to make some cute hats and sundresses to match by next summer so she'll be the cutest girl in her neighborhood.

Great hats Nikki, you've done it again. I've never made a hat before and would love to try. I have some pirate fabric that would look fantastic as a hat. Lucky I have 3 boys to experiment on! Sally :)

I just saw the hat Lara made and have to have this pattern! Please draw my name from the hat, then I can make hats to go with my bags. Thanks, Lynda

Taccolina said...

Little me, soon to be an aunty - definitely would love to make hats. Train them in good style choice while they're young, right?

annayama said...

I would love to join your giveaway. Making and giving little hats for birthdays and Christmas is what I am infamous for. I am always on the look out for older hats (have good toddler/baby hats). After Thornberry's review of your pattern, this will be an aquisition if the giveaway fails. ;D

imnotcharming said...

These hats are adorable! Now i have a few more kids to make things for I think hats might be next on the list!

sarahau said...

Such a gorgeous pattern Nikki! Love to win one so I can make hats for my peeps!!!

bloggerjeanne said...

Very cute! I can see my girls wearing these!

Lisa said...

As an Aussie with three little girls in Montreal Canada, we don't have much call for sunhats at the moment! Today was -3C but maybe this pattern could be sewn with polarfleece! All the hats look great.

Anonymous said...

I wish I had that kind of skill/talent. I have been sewing for 48 years and I am still learning. Thanks to all the bloggers for being such good teachers.

rhonda said...

Oh! My best friend's daughter would look so cute in this hat. (And me, too!) What a great design!

Tina O'Donnell said...

Have just been introduced to your website and totally hooked. Had great success with the evening bag, attempting makeup and coin purses. In need of a hat for my little girl so very happy the new pattern is on its way. Can't wait to try it.
