Sun Kissed Hat - Make It Pefect Pattern Parade

When Toni asked me to participate in the Make It Perfect Pattern Parade, my first thought was "what, huh, me?"  What an honor!  My second thought was, perfect timing.  We took a 2 week vacation to visit family in Florida and my daughter was in desperate need of a functional hat.
 The Sun Kissed Hat is a really great hat.  First of all, it's reversible.  I let my daughter peruse my fabric stash and pick her own hat fabrics.
The thing I love most about this hat is the little opening in back that lets you pull a ponytail through.  Perfect for my long haired little girl!  I've got on in the works for myself and my mom has already requested one for her.
I ended up having to alter the pattern a tiny bit.  The band on my first hat was a just a bit too wide.  I also only interfaced one of the 2 fabrics and the hat was a bit too floppy.  So on my second version, I shortened the band and interfaced both the inside and outside brim pieces.
I think it's safe to say the girl loves her new hat!
In case you missed the start of the parade, here are all the previous posts.  
Thanks so much Toni for letting me be a part of this!
