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 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.
