For the first hat, I used a hat that I bought at Hobby Lobby and created an applique to put on the front. My husband has a Purdue hat the DJ Ark liked to wear around sometimes so I thought he would like his very own Purdue hat. I love the way it turned out and am thinking of adding a little bit of embroidering to it to make it even more personal.
The other hat I made from scratch. I found a great tutorial that was exactly the type of hat that I wanted. I also found some cute fabric (again at Hobby Lobby) and got to sewing. I love the way it turned out and if he likes wearing it I might have to make another one since it was so easy to put together.
