Having fun with fedoras

Today, over on Sew Cool for the Tween Scene, I am giving a review of Elegance and Elephant's Fedora Hat pattern.  But I thought I would share some of the E&E hats I have been making here too.  I love to make hats.  They are a fun accessory and the kids really enjoy them.

I have now sewn 3 of these guys and I really like the pattern but have struggled a bit to get the fit right.  My daughter's have such big heads.  (there is a joke in there somewhere)

The first one I made layering a sheer sparkly fabric over a pink satin.  It turned out great and was loved, but it did not fit the girls.  (And none of the pictures turned out great.  I don't know if it was my lighting or the sparkle)

The next one was the one I shared a couple weeks ago.  It fit Eli great and looks quite handsome on him.

So I tried to increase the size of the hat to fit my eldest.  It fits, but the shape is just not right.  I don't know if that is the cheep fabric I used or my grading.  Probably both.

But it is a cute option for her.
I might be done with hats for a bit though.  I have been marathon sewing for them to make up some gaps in their wardrobes and I really want a chance to make something for me.  No time to waste on silly hats.

How about you?  Do you dabble with hat making?
