Details of swap:
This is a quick, one item swap: make a sunhat for your partner! All styles and construction methods may be considered (for example, you may sew, knit, crochet, batik, embroider, weave, knot... I don't know what else!), but it has to be a wearable sun hat (so, like, no wool or thick quilting, okay?). Brims are strongly recommended -- they are what keeps the sun off! You can make the hat from scratch or decorate a purchased, plain hat. Extra throw-ins are allowed, but the main idea here is to make a hat for someone else, without a lot of stress and worry and postage fees. It's almost summer, after all!
