Making a Summer Hat nodp

I bought this used hat (orange) for my granddaughter and thought about crocheting one for me out of some raffia I had on hand. I know I have all sorts of other projects to finish, but this, I could sit on the floor with the little one while she played with my crochet hooks and raffia. I really didn't even think I'd finish this, but half way through, I thought I could at least use it for a scarecrow hat for Halloween. One thing always leads to another...

From raffia to plastic bags--only because I ran out of the stuff and I wanted to finish this without having to buy anything for it. I saved all the ribbons from the gifts given to us from my daughter--I wove them in to fill some holes...






These series of pictures were taken by my granddaughter. She loved clicking away--I deleted so many, but saved these.

The hat fits us both--it looks so much better on her--it's probably hers now.

Susan!

I love that you personalized the raffia hat and made it all your own.

The colorful ribbons filled the holes nicely!

It seems that artists are always jumping from project to project, right?
