Hat Makeover

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 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!
