OK, I've just plain had fun with this!
First, I crocheted a basic hat. The brim can be rolled or open or partially rolled. I haven't decided which way I like it best yet. It's pretty comfortable—more than I was expecting it to be.
My Duck Week t-shirt is orange and they are using a Dr. Sueuss theme so this one is "Horton Hears A Quack." It has blue flowers and white daisies.
I used a silky-feel orange fabric and serged it with royal blue. There are blue, white and orange daisies and it is couched down with royal blue sheer ribbon.
The Hats Off To Abby Hat contest is for most unique hat... I'm just going for fun. I may add some mini-signs that have "quack" on them just to add to the theme. I've had a couple people tell me they think my hat will win. Whether it does or not, I'm going to donate it to the Silent Auction to help raise money as long as I get to wear it in the contest.
Oh, did I mention the hat is crocheted plastic shopping bags! It's my
classy trashy hat.
