Mad Hatter Flower hats

 This flower hat is the picture of summer!

Look it’s a Summer bouquet! Sometimes a hat is more than something to keep the sun out of your face; it’s a statement. Hats don’t denote social status anymore, but they do convey a sense of fashion. A flower on your heads is definely a fashion accessory that says “look at me”. The old saying: “if you want to get ahead and get noticed, then get a hat” applies in this case.  I gave my niece Piper a flower hat a few summers ago and I have never been stopped by so many people or heard so many comments as when she wore that hat around town (Bloomington, Indiana). Today’s utilitarian hat wearing traditions are much more ho-hum than those of by-gone days, but I believe this flower hat falls into the category of  a hat for “an occation”. What is the occation to wear such a hat? A beautiful, sunny day!

  1. beautiful! and I have an EMily and Ellie as well. They are 6 and 7. I adore the flower hat. Do you have a pattern/tutorial for these? Would absolutely adore to make one for Emily for her birthday. simply elegant.

  2. Hi Jennifer, That’s too funny that we have daughters with the same names! I have the pattern for the hat but I haven’t made a tutorial yet. When is your daughters birthday?

  3. Hi! I made the pattern, but I haven’t gotten around to making sewing directions for it. When I do, I’ll post it on my blog. Thanks for asking.

  4. Could you e-mail this pattern and or instructions to me? This will be so perfect for our girls playing the plates in beauty and the beast.

  5. Hi Tonya,

    When I prepare the pattern and write the directions, I’ll post that it’s ready on my blog and it can then be purchased on my Etsy site, via my blog. It will be after the holiday season before I get to this project.

    Thanks,
    Laura

  6. I have been long admiring this hat, it is just lovely and I say this as a woman who wears hats. Please do sell the pattern, I think the culture of hat wearing is a shame to have lost to modernity.

  7. Thank You Sara! This hat is on my list of patterns to make. It’s a time consuming process, so I haven’t done it yet, but I WILL.

    Sincerely,
    Laura
