Thanks guys.  I didn't figure on being the first one to post...I was going to use 'strategery' and all, but then I decided, what the heck.  It's good enough!

I had thought of at least making a little bead with a face painted on it like a little doll to display it, but I didn't want it to detract from the hat itself.  I could make a little bitty hat stand out of a bead and some wire.  Could be nice.

As for how I did it...I just made that hook as tiny and as pointy as I could with a metal nail file so it would go through the stitches like a needle would have, but with the 'hook' part still able to grab the thread.  I made a flat piece, 15 single crochet stitches across, 8 rows high, then seamed it up and added the flower.

Viola!

That hat is incredible!  I don't think I could get my hands to do something that teeny tiny.  I'm in awe!

Its a hat for a needle, in case the needle gets cold.

The flower is nice, actually.

I've got knitting needles, and I'm not afraid to use them.

From one crocheter to another, let me say FANTASTIC job!

I too used sewing thread for my challenge entry but my item is no where near that small.
