    What a cute hat! I make Halloween costumes for babies, so this is an absolute must for those cute hats that never stay on. (When have babies ever just left their hats alone??) Thank you so much!

    A suggestion when doing your samples … cute fabrics are nice to show for samples, but the seams don’t show well. i’d like to see pastel or medium tone plain fabric in the instructions so the construction is more visible.
