Infant Sun Hats

I made it my summer's ambition to make my girls sun hats.  I didn't want to buy a pattern.  So I found a free downloadable pattern online.  How hard could it be?  That's what I thought.  But after more than half a dozen hats "finished" and only one or two that were moderately okay...I broke down...I bought a real pattern.  We were going to visit my parents in Florida in less than a week.  Nothing like cutting it down to the wire.  I finished up the last hat of two the night before our flight.  They turned out pretty darn cute.  I plan to use the same pattern to make fall/winter hats.

 I added a ribbon on the inside so the we could tie the hats on for windy days and boat rides
 I did a zig-zag stitch in order to catch the underside seam also (I missed it the first try)
