Sun hats for my sunshines

Last weekend my boys all left me home with only the girls, so what did we do (besides go out for dinner and shop)...
We made sun hats!  I had pinned a sun hat tutorial from Riley Blake Designs a while back.  
 The pattern called for 5/8" seam allowance - so I made the first one that way and found that it was a bit too small for the 5 year old princess - so that one was for the little gem instead.
 For the larger hat I used the SAME pattern but only used 1/4" seam allowance and it seems to work for her!
 The pattern also called for two 'straps' that would tie under the chin to keep it in place - I decided that I wanted to just be able to plop the hats on their heads, so no ties.  Who knows I may regret that choice and make new ones later this (windy) summer!
 Now, I just need to find a cute pattern for a little boys hat, as we'll need at least 2 of those for the summer.  {Sometimes girl's things are so much easier to find patterns for}
Here is to hoping that we have a lovely, sunshiney summer!
This picture was taken in the bright sunshine and it makes me smile!
