Over the weekend I made two hats. The first was a huge disappointment.
Not that it turned out poorly or anything. The sewing actually went quite well. (Pattern is "Hip-Hop Hat with Visor" from "Happy Hats and Cool Caps" by Anne-Mette Hermansen and Tina Elnef.)
It's not that it didn't fit my huge pumpkin of a noggin' either (23 1/4" - 23 1/2" depending on how closely cut my hair is), because the fit was perfect.
No, like so many other hats I've tried on over the years (purchased or handmade) it just looked dorky on me. (sigh) Luckily Heddie doesn't mind wearing it. She says it keeps the dust off her wig as she sits in the corner of my sewing room.
But, as I said, I made TWO hats. I'll show you the second one tomorrow.
