A couple of months ago I was at Target (yes, very typical of me) and I found this hat on clearance. My first thought was, hmmmm that's an odd little bird. However, that hat itself was cute and I figured I could give it a mini makeover. Here it is before the makeover.
See what I mean? It's a bit odd. If any of you readers bought this same hat and like the bird, please don't be offended. I can't rock the bird, but I'm sure you can.
I removed the bird and ribbon through some careful surgery. Don't worry - the bird was NOT harmed in the process. I replaced the ribbon with a black one and I tacked it on in a few places along the way.
Now it's pretty neutral, but I can spice it up if I want to. Since I didn't sew the ribbon down everywhere, I can clip on anything that's on an alligator clip like this. (I happen to have quite a few of these as hair accessories.)
Voila! A hat for any occasion.....like taking my little guy to preschool when I haven't showered.
That's all for today. Thanks for tuning in and thank you for your kind comments! I sure appreciate it!
