These hats are made from a totally boring blue T-shirt and some scrap flannel I picked up in the remnant bin for, like, $1.
The bill of the hat can be flipped up or down, but it isn't really possible to see with it down. But, it looks way cuter that way, so I say "Phooey!" to unobstructed views. Oh, and the pattern doesn't include a cute button closure, but I threw one on there because I am awesome like that.
I think this orange one almost looks a little rugby-esque and I love it:
My kid was all, "MOM! It's HOT in the sun!! When can I take it off??" And I was all, "Just smile and stop yer whinin' or I'll make you wear it ALL DAY!!" (I didn't really say it like that, but I'm reading a novel set in 1940's Mississippi right now and I'm thinking in southern speak.)
