The hat turned out just wonderfully. She looks darling in it! Thank you for always sharing such good ideas!


I just rang my friend Kylie to tell her she has won the competition- YIPPEE! I can't wait to see what she makes out of your scrumptious fabric. Thank you Tanya for your wonderful generosity.

Thank you for sharing the pattern. she looks so cute with the hat.
Congratulations Smileykylie, you are really lucky!


Congrats, Kylie! I will try hard not to think ill thoughts about you ;) but you must post pictures of all the neatness you make with the fabric!

Great hat!




The hat looks gorgeous! Thanks for the pattern. Beautiful photos.


What a darling adorable hat! I'll have to attempt a few........


Yipppeeee!!! Can't wipe the smile off my face :) Thank you again Tanya for such a generous gift. You are such a creative and talented soul. Oh the possibilities! What a blessing, now to do it justice!

The gorgeous hat will have to wait till winter as it's Summer here in Australia, warm and sunny beach weather. There's nothing quite like hanging Christmas lights in 40 degree heat and getting a phone call from your girlfriend to tell you that you've won! Thanks Janelle.


congratulations to smileykylie! she is one lucky girl. thanks for hosting a fabulous give away. :)


i love this hat! thank you for sharing the pattern! i am going to try it. your daughter is beautiful!
i am jelaous I did not win the fabric, but that is okay, the mother daughter skirts are still going to happen. i think i might have to make my daughter a matching bonnet too!
I can not wait!

Hi Tanya,
What gorgeous pics of your daughter!
Love the hat...thanks for sharing the pattern. I will definitely give it a go when it comes into our winter. I have a daughter who loves wearing hats too!

Precious hat! My 10 year old would definitely approve. very chic!
I like that you said it's only 20min to sew. (another perk!)
I have been knitting hats over the summer, but putting some like these together before the holidays will really come in handy as great gifts. Thanks for the inspiration.
Now to find "minky" fabric. Not sure what that is, but i'm sure some sweet, gentle fabric-lady will point me in the right direction.


Love the hat!! She is so cute :))
And thanks for sharing such lovely pictures from the Romantic Homes article!!

Kiss, Aina

This is perfect! I was looking to get my little niece a hat, but didn't like any of the ones I saw.
Thank you soooo much for the free pattern. I already have some of that wonderful minky fabric, so I'm all set to sew!

Thanks for the darling hat pattern! Can't wait to try it for my new granddaughter. Question, when printing out your pattern do I change scaling to "none" so it will be the correct size?
Thanks for the info.

I can't find the pattern for the darling hat.
Is it still there or am I just bling?
