I love this darling little bucket hat! Just like the one I wore to the beach in the early 60's. Looks so cute with the Ruffled Romper as well as some of the swim suits and shorts outfits. I'm wondering if it could be made in rip-stop or nylon as a rain hat. And that it's so easy is a bonus! Thank you, Matilda's Closet!

Easy and stylish

This pattern was so easy to follow. I sewed a matching hat for my grandson and his 18" male doll. He loves them both! Hard to find a hat a kid will keep on, but this one is a winner. I skipped the lining to make a crushable hat like the Wallaroo Explorers!


Fabulous hat

I love this hat it was so easy to follow instructions. Everyone who sees it wants me to make them one.


Fashion Find

Really cute--looks just like that big name brand adventure hat for a fraction of the price. Dolls are living in style now.


great pattern

this pattern is very easy to follow, using different fabric makes a lot of different looks for this style
