    A fun sun Hat

    Our daughter thought I need a sun hat, she found this one at the 99 Cent store, so I picked up 3/4 yard of grosgrain ribbon at Joann's, and this morning I used a little Elmer's glue and stitched the ribbon to the hat. So this is my Designer Hat for the summer

    Looks very respectable. I would have gone with something goofy and wild. Your idea is much better:-)

    Looks great and smart to. Better to wear a hat and not have skin cancer.

    I have decided I am a hat buyer, instead of a hat wearer!! Almost every time we do something outdoors. I need a hat. Did I bring one? No, so must buy one. LOL
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    A fantastic hat for 99 cents! The ribbon really dresses it up.

    Love it!

    I love to wear hats, but unfortunately I have a tiny head and most women's hats don't fit me. Believe me, this makes it very difficult to find hats that fit. Children's hats are too small, women's too large. I tend to stick with b-ball caps, but they are not very flattering (at least on me) and they don't shade the back of my neck.

    Wish I could find a $1 hat that looks as wonderful as yours! Enjoy wearing it.

    I love your hat with the ribbon. I would have put brighter color on it, but yours looks great.

    That is a very pretty hat-and the ribbon just makes it look finished. I agree - wear a hat and protect yourself from skin cancer.
    This too shall pass.

    Now that's a great hat! I have several that are showing their age big time -- I can see I need to go pick up a few more and decorate just like you did.....

    ILovetoquilt, I have the same problem. But I have used fun foam, measured inside the hat, and put a piece about 1" wide, all the way around the inside. (I tape it and just put it on my hair, then put hat on. If it fits, I use Goop and glue it insde. If not, I cut another piece, same size, glue them together, then glue into hat. If I want a bit nicer look, I cut a piece of cotton material to fit around the foam, then glue into the hat. I've also used elastic, in wider widths. Anything just to fill up the necessary space. Sometimes the hat will have a ribbon around the inside, I've even slipped foam inside that.

    This just goes to prove where there is a will there is a way...great ideas to reach your goal. I was think a band like in cowboy hats stitched inside, did not think of a foam strip. I think I want to decorate another with a colored ribbon, maybe navy or black...as I am not really very adventurous. Lol.

    I've purchased similar hats for my daughters, but then I used my embroidery machine to put their monograms on the brim. They liked them so well they asked for hats done for all their friends!

    Me too.....Polka dots or flipflops ribbon is more my taste BUT----I love the ribbon used, too. Very neutral and will go with anything!
    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!
