I love AprilDraven hats!  A few years ago, she was kind enough to share her convertible hat pattern and this year, she made the cutest one with hearts!  I tried so hard to make the hearts, but I am not that skilled at following a chart yet...this is what I ended up with anyway...and I love it!

The stripes are not even because the first white stripe was where the hearts were suppose to go..Cheesy



Then, I decided I loved this one so much, that I made myself another!



and, uh, how sick is this...another!!!



Thank you Apri Draven!  Hang on while I go find the link to her awesome post and inspiration!

Good job! I like the blue/ multi colored and black one best. I love her hat designs they are awesome, but I too have trouble with following a chart.

thank you--so I am guessing that you make your little monsters on your own? Cheesy

I am still learning...I plan on practicing on scraps because it is one of my goals to do a filet piece someday! Cheesy

thanks to your excellent instructions!  I love hats and like to have a lot of variety depending on my mood!  I used to think your slouchy hat was my favorite but now I think this one is coming close! Cheesy

I seriously am going to give it my best shot to try the hearts again...Cheesy

Appreciate your support and encouragement, AprilDraven!

thanks for the encouragement and kind comments! I am definitely going to try again!

Silkymist, your hat in your avatar is really cute as well! Ears are going to be one of the things I try as well! Cheesy
