I'm in LOVE with the Eddie Hat pattern and decided to see if my son shared my enthusiasm. The first day he hated it.  Embarrassed Now he won't put it down.  Grin

How do you get an antsy almost two year old to sit still and now make a frowning face long enough for a picture? Distract him with Yo Gabba Gabba, of course!

I plan on making a ton more of these. They're so easy and fast!

I forgot to mention that my son's head is a fair might smaller than the pattern so I ended up bunching WAY too much at the back. I guess I'll make the top smaller next time! haha

Thats a really cute hat, if its also easy and fast, then it must be AWESOME!

What make is the pattern and do you think it could be altered for an adult (adulterated)?

LOVE the hat, my daughter would love to have a Tink hat like that.  Where did you get the pattern?

Oh, how neat.  I took a hat apart once and tried making some from the pattern I made from it.  I had a heck of a time and only ended up making a couple.  Yours looks so neat and professional.  What I think I did wrong, though, was I took old hat bills (isn't that what the front part that sticks out to shade your eyes is called?) and tried to use them but had such a hard time that I gave up.  I like this one, so my question is how did you make that part, what did you use to stiffen it?  Just curious.  Personally I don't think a hat like this HAS to be so stiff.  What do you think?  Any advice is sure welcome.  I'd like to make some for my new grandson due in Oct.

Adorable! I love hats for little kids. My daughter has the same look when she watches Gabba too.

My son is always in his sun hat like a little old man, this would be great for the fall!!

*agrafikartist* depending on how stiff you want your bill you can use heavy interfacing (I like iron on) either one side or both, that's what I do. I also saw (but not tried) on threadbanger site to use a piece of cardboard from like a cereal box and duct tape to make it sturdier and water resistant.

very cute!

i love this pattern, too...just wanted to add my two cents (for what it's worth Wink) and say that cutting a curve in the side of the brim that attaches to the hat (got that?) is very important to how it turns out.  (i forgot to do it the second time i tried this pattern and it looked pretty goofy) Smiley

Will swap for baby food jars (or other small jars with lids)
