Allie chose the green and black floral she had picked for her Laguna and specified that she wanted black binding like my hat.
The only alteration I made to the original pattern was to fold out some of the height in the crown of the hat and remove about an inch from the outside of the brim. I also made the band about an inch narrower. I left the circumference of the hat the same, which worked fine. For our family, the one size fits all hat is kid-sized!
Jenna chose a super-cute sea animal print that I bought as a remnant several years ago.
I didn't have any matching bias binding, so I made hers to match. I also couldn't find my bias maker thingamajig, so I made it the old fashioned way. . .luckily, it didn't take too much.
This free pattern has been 100% worth it! Ha ha. I highly recommend it.
