Easy and adorable

This pattern was easy to follow and looks so adorable on my son! I’m currently creating my 2nd and 3rd sunny hats for him as we speak!

Taryn (Sydney, AU)
Aussie Sunny Hat

I made this for my grandson. I lined the hat with red flanelette so it is warm in the cooler weather. The pattern was easy to follow & the instructions were clear. I added a "Homemade with love" tag on the brim, & a little heart tag on the crown. Next one will have a fancy button I think! I like that there is no back or front to this hat. Just put it on!! Fabulous :)
Thank you for sharing your pattern for free. Very generous of you.

Cute Hat

Lovely pattern, quick to sew and very comfy to wear. I have already made two out of linnen.
Thanks for the easy to follow and nice to look at tutorial.

Great hat!

I made an opening for my ponytail so the hat fits better. When sewing, watch your seam allowance as (with 6 seams) it’s easy to make the hat too small or too big. A great hat for all ages.

Such a cute hat!

This pattern and help from video were easy to follow and turned out so cute. I made 3 for my granddaughters to match their Petal wrap dresses I had done. They look so adorable in them. I will be making more - one for myself and whoever else in my family that would like one. With the smaller size though the petal flower add-on was a bit difficult to turn smoothly but it didn't matter still adorable.

Easy to follow. First one too big had to make a second
My niece wouldn’t take it off at bathtime

Brilliant, came together easily. Far easier than a bucket hat!

Barbara Reynolds (Norwich, CA)
Adorable hat

I made this as part of an Easter outfit for my granddaughter and it is beautiful. I used the petal add on for a sweet spring look. Great sew great look and great fit.

Great pattern

Loved making this sun hat, clear instructions and a very handy tip before turning to right side out! Had to make a second as first one came up a bit big.
