Hats On Folks

Because summer is slowly creeping towards me (in the Southern Hemisphere), I thought this would be a good time to make myself a hat, to protect myself against the heat.

The author stands in front of a green hedge, back to the camera, photographed from the shoulders up. She wears a navy blue sunhat with a blue floral band around it. Her shirt is sea-green, and her dark brown hair peeks out from under the brim.

This brim was the second brim I made for it, and the band was added to the hat because it didn’t feel deep enough when it was on, but now I am happy!

The author is photographed back to the camera, facing a green hedge with pink flowers on top. She wears a navy sunhat, and is flipping up the back of the brim to show the floral lining. Her shirt is sea-green, and her shoulder-length dark brown hair shows.

As you can see, the band matches the lining, and I reversed the colour of the band in the lining.

The navy blue sunhat sits on a white background, so that the inside is visible. Most of it is lined in a blue and yellow floral fabric, with a band of the navy blue main fabric.

It also folds up really small, so it does not take up much space in my bag.

The author is photographed from the side against a green hedge, wearing the navy-and-floral hat. One hand is pulling the brim down, covering her face, and her dark brown hair is visible. She wears a sea-green shirt.

As I mentioned, it was initially going to be just navy on the outside. But, I think I like having the band there anyway – it’s a nice contrast, and makes it more interesting. Given how hot Australian summers can get, it will definitely get a lot of use! I do love making things that I can use and appreciate on a daily basis.

Anyways, see ya!
