Look at the cute little cap I whipped up for Little 'A' :)
After making all the baby boy hats for our friends, I realized I didn't make MY baby boy one! So last night I made this little number. I'm pretty pleased with the way it came out too. We officially tested it out outside today & the brim does a fine job of keeping the rays out of his face.
And for the first time ever in history, I wrote down the pattern! Well, not so much wrote down as 'took mental notes'...
Bear with me here folks, this is the first time I've written a pattern. I have a habit of just 'going with the flow' & crossing my fingers that it works. I'd say 8 out of 10 times I'm not cursing myself for it. Not bad if you ask me, which technically you kind of did when you came on my blog, just sayin'...

Again, that right there is my first attempt at writing a pattern, let me know if you have any problems with it. And let me know if you make something :) I would love for you to use it, but please give my site credit for the pattern.
