Hope you like the easier version!
Approximate Time: 30-60 minutes
I have submitted this kind of hat before, but now I am redoing the pattern. I no longer need a soda cap, or stuffing, etc.
NOTE: These pins are to be worn indoors. Inclement weather isn't advised.
OPTIONS: You can make your hats magnets instead of pins if you like. Or, you can doll up your pretty pin with some feathers, (like on a boa), some seed beads on a string around the base of the hat band, and spray the whole thing with red or purple glitter spray or paint. Just a touch will give it a pretty finish.
You can also make a pretty Easter Bonnet with pastel thread, and flowers all over the top. And, a Patriotic Straw hat using cream or white for the hat, and some red/white/blue ribbon and flowers.
I hope you find this pattern easier than the other one I submitted. I know I did!

You make it look so easy. Very cute.
Wow, I love your pin. I think I'll make some in different colors for the girls I know, that aren't in the red hat society age group. Thanks a lot.
Thank you both. I have made these in pink, yellow, mint green, peach, and lavender, all for spring. I will be making some in Ecru, with Navy/Burgundy for an Americana 4th of July fair. You can make them out of black with silver/gold threads, or just black with some silver giltter spray and fancy them up with faux gems, too. Using the basic pattern, you can make them in any style you like.
I am going to enter this, plus other pins I have made over the last couple of years into the State Fair in Salem, OR this year. I am back in Oregon, so that is nice.
Hope you all make lots of hats!
