I picked up this hounds tooth fabric at Jo Ann's the other day thinking it would make cute shoes for my son.
My husband was very excited to see me bring hounds tooth in the house (which was great because he usually cringes when he sees me bring more fabric into our house!) He said "you're going to make a hat? That will be adorable!" And he looked a bit crushed when I told him it was for shoes.
The hat he was excited about is this one...
My husband is a big Alabama fan, and by big I mean a really, really huge fan! If you know anything about Alabama football you may recognize the man in that picture. It is legendary football coach Paul "Bear" Bryant who always wore that checked fedora style hat. And while I don't care much for Alabama football, my husband was right...A would look cute in that hat!
So I created this baby fedora.
I made the top oval so it has a fedora look.
And turned it up in the back just like The Bear's.
I even lined it with crimson...I think I've lost my mind!
But I have to admit, my little guy looks adorable all dressed up to watch the game with daddy!
And I think I still have enough left over for shoes!
