Very nice pattern

Well written and good pattern. I made a cord while keeping it reversible by making a button hole on each side, putting fabric ribbons through it and making a not on each side of the ribbons.

Perfect scrap buster!

The Sunny hat was my first Twig and Tale pattern! The amazing video tutorial made it so that my mother and I could successfully line up our seams for the first time! I've made three Sunny hats and they are perfect for using up scraps, fat quarters or upcycling old cotton blouses. The unique shape of the hat means it is quite deep and the brim covers my daughter’s neck and face very well. During a Texas summer, I never go anywhere without our Sunny Hat. Oh, and because it's reversible, you get two looks in one hat!

Such a fun pattern to make up. Quite addictive. Made one in each size up to S just to make sure the right one fitted.

Looks good

Good pattern easy to follow and looks reall sweet.

A bit pointy

I love the detail of T&T’s written instructions and videos. Unfortunately, for me, this pattern resulted in a hat that was a bit pointy on top even though I felt I followed the seam allowances perfectly. It was still cute and very functional though. I think there is an appropriate amount of brim on this hat; enough to block the sun but not too much that it falls down and blocks her vision. I hope T&T continues to release patterns since they seem to be by far the easiest to follow and learn from.

Really cute and well made pattern, the addition with the scalloped edge makes it feel like a flower!

The cutest little hat!

The pattern works up pretty easily with the great directions provided.

I wanted to make it with a contrasting fabric so I adapted it slightly....and still had success!! Thank you...
