The Sweetie Pie Hat, by Flossie Potter, is a reversible accessory that can coordinate with two outfits by using the fabric from both. Make it with flannel or cotton for a softer, floppier, look; or use felt (from a bolt) for a more molded appearance. For spring and summer, try flowered prints; for fall and winter, make it with plaid. The sky's the limit!
A seamstress with minimal experience can make this hat in about 15 minutes with the included "Quick Method" of assembly. Your doll will be ready to go out in no time!
