Ready for the Sun!

A friend of mine needed a sunhat for her little boy and I happened to find the perfect pattern on sale for $0.99. When I saw this pattern I had the perfect fabric from my stash in mind- a wonderful khaki patchwork plaid. So adorable!
The hat is fully lined, but was really easy to put together!

The pattern called for using 5/8" ribbon to finish off the edge of the hat. I was on a time crunch and didn't have any ribbon on hand, so I finished off the edge with a decorative stitch. It looks a little unfinished, but it looked OK overall and it was still soft for the little guy's head.
Here is my little Sherlock Holmes modeling the finished product. I'm pleased with the outcome and I will be making more of these, for sure!
