Well, I was determined to make a summer hat for my girl, and the Eddie cap seemed just right (tutorial: http://mushroomvillagers.wordpress.com/the-eddie-cap-tutorial/ )



With a little bit of an ikea shower curtain, and some coordinating Amy Butler dots, I whipped this up in an afternoon.



I had a little bit of trouble, in that I am an IDIOT and insist on changing things on the fly and getting myself into trouble out of which there is only one possible recourse (hello, seamripper) but if you actually follow the directions, there shouldn't be too many problems.  Other than topstitching.  Grrr, topstitching. 



I had to totally remake it after really screwing up the brim by trying to "improve" it, which resulted in my daughter having zero peripheral vision.  My advice?  Stick to the tute.  Look how cute it turns out!



Well, thanks for reading.  Love to hear what you think!

That's adorable!  I might have to try it for my dd - she's into hats at the moment.  Could change in an instant, but if I get to it in the near future, there's some chance that she might actually wear it!  I'll have to check out the tute and bookmark it if I think it's in my ability range!
