    Happy birthday and congrats on your first pattern! I'd definitely make one for my son- his 3rd bday is coming up and we're taking him to a Laurie Berkner Band concert. All of the kids are supposed to come dressed for a birthday party so this would be a great thing for him twice! :)

    Happy Birthday!

    I'd make these for my girls….who are about to turn 5. And I'd also make them for any little birthday parties we go to. It'd be adorable to present the birthday kid with something so unique.

    Maybe you got a new sewing machine??

    I saw these when you first posted about it and have wanted to try my hand at it since. My son is turning "1" in three weeks and this would be soooo cute!

  71. 71

    I follow your blog. It has quickly become one of my favorites.

  72. 72

    blogged about it at

  73. 73

    I'm sure your husband has a hard time finding anything to give you. You already make everything yourself. But if I had to guess…..Really I can't even make a guess. A cricut cake? That's what I want.

  74. 74

    I would love to make one of these so each kid gets a special hat for their special day!

  75. 75

    Happy Birthday, Becca! I'd love to win the pattern (and may buy one if I don't). I'd make the hat first for a young woman who is graduating from college next month. She's off to Oxford in the fall for her Masters. I'd come up with a "no dunce" type of fabric and make one for her to wear at her going away party. She'd kill me. It would be perfect. :)

    I would make a hat for my daughter. She will be 3 in July (which is probably how long it will take me to make the hat!)

    I have no idea what your hubby got you but I'm betting it's either an old piece of furniture for you to refinish :) or a new sewing machine!
