Sweet orange hat.

I just finished this great hat for my little one last night. I could not wait for her to wake up and try in on. (see the first image of her eating breakfast with the hat on!)

I used my basic hat pattern and just measured her head to get it right. 
It took a few tries as it was not so easy to figure out where to take away and when it was too much. 
Fabric choice was hard but I love the fabric we chose(yes Mike was roped in).

The under brim fabric is blue and off-white and I just cut a strip of fabric and sewed it onto the hat in a shape of a flower.

The brim also has decoration around it that just gives it a finished look.

One thing I did notice during the day was that it moves around but the hat still looks good no matter how it sits on her head!

Excuse me, but this is the cutest girl's hat I have ever seen! I may be asking you to make one for a little wee one close to my heart.
