Here is the rather silly hat I made that I wrote about in the last post.  It has lots of colors!  It is fun and crazy!  The fabric I used was all leftover pieces from the two zipper pouches that I made for my sister while she was visiting me, so I wanted to give it to her even though I knew she would probably never wear it.  Sort of a joke gift, I guess.  But it was great to have those fabric scraps because it gave me something to practice the hat pattern with without feeling too perfectionistic about it.

My family was all together for Easter weekend, so I had the opportunity to take pictures of my sis wearing the hat.

You can see she is giggling because she has a silly bright-colored hat on her head.

She actually does wear hats a lot, and owns quite a few of them because she is really sensitive to sunlight and needs to keep covered up when she goes outside.  But she prefers hats that are just one color instead of several colors with polka dots and flowers and more polka dots.

So I will probably make her a more sensible one eventually.  I also need to find something to stiffen the brim a little next time.
