Fun Summer Hats

I saw hats like this on someone's blog and I just had to make them! They were so simple to do.  I ironed fabric onto fusible webbing.  I used a petal template that I found on the Internet to cut out the flowers.  Then I folded each petal and ironed them to make them flare out.  I punched a hole in the middle of each flower and pinned them together with a brad.  I used needle and thread to tack the flowers to the hat from underneath and finished the centers with some large 'gems.'

This little hat is for Katie, my 2 year old granddaughter.  I was lucky to find a hat small enough to fit her, but since it had an image on the front, I had to use the flower to cover it up.


  1. O my gosh! These are fantastic!

    Great job!
