1 Hat, 6 Looks

I taught my friend Kaitlin how to crochet recently, and she wanted to learn to make hats. We found some easy patterns to get her started, and then I started making them too... they are like potato chips, you can't make just one.. LOL!

I decided to make a hat for Kaitlin's younger sister, and I wanted her to be able to wear it with different outfits. So I made the hat in a neutral color, and then made her 6 different flowers that she could clip on to it:

I had these big hair clips that I bought to use as binding clips for my quilting - I never did use them for that, so they were just sitting around. I hot-glued them to the back of each flower.

I think my favorite one is the brown one... it did not photograph well at all, but it is gorgeous! I used Red Heart Shimmer yarn in Chocolate.

If you would like the particulars of any of the flowers or the hat pattern, just leave me a comment and I'll get back to you!
