    *chuckle* I’d be making a lot of hats-my 17 month old and her 8 and 7 month old cousins for starters, then I’d add to my hat collection.

  60. Marcia Kosturock says:

    I’d make a hat for me from that (oh brain freeze here but I’m trying to think of that coated waterproof fabric). Anyhow, migraines and thinking don’t go together obviously… I’d make myself a hat for those rainy days when you are forced to go out anyhow..and a hat would make all that so much better. And a cute fabric and a cute hat would make everyone else so jealous!

  61. aprilshowers says:

    My kids are very fair and very good about wearing their sunhats and I love how fun you can make them with different fabrics so I would definitely make them some more!

  62. Deb H. says:

    My daughter loves hats…I would have to make some for her and her friends.

  63. Jan says:

    I’d make a hat for myself. I love hats.

  64. Kristie says:

    I would make a fedora for my 3.5 year old. He got a cheap one a year ago and wears it all the time. He calls it his “fancy” hat and he always gets nice comments from the older people we see when we are out. They love a little formality in a toddler. I’d love to make my boy a special fedora for the holidays. Thanks! kristie_keely(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  65. Mary says:

    I’d make a hat for my husband. He has a very large head, and it’s hard to buy a ready-made one to fit. Thanks for the chance to win.

  66. Renae says:

    I have 2 teenage girls that would happily pick out a hat or two for me to make—or teach them to make.

  67. Jenny C says:

    I make lots of hats, but the next one is for me. Why? Hats protect us from the SUN and it is leading by example that our children learn to wear theirs. A “no hat no play” policy helps too.
    Consider you and your family’s health next time you walk out the door! Cancer is a killer!

  68. Jenny says:

    I’d make a hat for my 3yo — he has been begging for one so he can be like his big brother. Thanks!

  69. zoom says:

    I’d make a hat for my friend who has breast cancer and who feels a bit funny about going out in public without any hair even though she’s stunning.

  70. Lily says:

    I would make hats for my two little boys (ages 1 and 2). That age is so adorable in little hats, especially hand-made ones!

  71. Annette says:

    Myself! I wear hats every day.

  72. Dawn says:

    I think I would have to make one for each person in my family because there are so many cute ones!

  73. marthaeliza says:

    Selfishly, I would make hats for myself. I have been self-conscious about my thinning hair since cancer took my hormones for a long walk off a short pier.

  74. Amy Swart says:

    I always struggle to find the perfect hat for my little girls (colour, shape etc) I would love to make her a few. Also my newborn little boy looks adorable in a hat.

  75. Serena says:

    Myself (because I need a new hat) and my daughters (because new hats are fun).

  76. Carmen says:

    I’d make a hat for my little girl – because she looks so adorable in hats!

  77. meghann says:

    Oh, my – I *want* this book!

    I think I would make a hat for my husband because I never make anything for him! And the kids already have lots of mama-made hatsÒ€¦ xo

  78. Jen V says:

    My boys (2 & 5) love to wear hats. The Eddie Cap was the first hat I sewed when my oldest was just about 2. It became his signature hat and I’ve been keeping them in mama-made hats ever since. This summer I made sun hats from Oliver + S. As Autumn eases in, it is time for some warmer hats. Fedoras, newsie caps, ear flaps, oh my!

  79. RP says:

    I make hats for nieces, nephews & for etsy! πŸ™‚

  80. beth says:

  81. Ang says:

    One for me for sure! And then for my girls since they have more hats than I have right now πŸ™‚

  82. Shannon says:

    my two week old boy will need a winter cap. I was certain I was having another girl—now I dont know what to sew for him, and I have not an scrap of gender nuetral fabric stashed. This book would give me a great starting point in the world of sewing for boys!

  83. Me, myself, and I. That’s who I’d make hats for…and for friends and their grandkids. Hats are so cool to wear. I think it’s time to make some.

  84. Marguerite Guinn says:

    I would make hat(s) for my two granddaughters!

  85. Becky says:

    I’m ‘fessing up to say I’d sew the FIRST hat for me! Because we just moved to Florida and I like to be outside and the sun is HOT. I want to look stylish at the same time I am trying to save my skin. I’d start there, and then make them for gifts, especially toddlers.

  86. Les Johnson says:

    I would make a hat for my daughter.

  88. SS Sews says:

    I’d make hats for nieces and nephews!

  90. beth says:

    I would make hats for all my grandkids! Who wants cold ears?

  91. MS Laura says:

    My baby, myself, and my husband (if he wanted one!).

  92. Marci Girl says:

    I’ll make a hat for my 8 month old…why? To protect that delicate baby skin!

  93. I would make a hat for my husband because the top of his head is a little more bare than it used to be…and it needs some covering πŸ˜‰

  94. Glenda says:

    I’d love to make a cute hat for my college daughter who is too-often running from sleep to classroom with a baseball cap thrown on her head because she has no time to do her hair. A stylish look (or two) would be a welcome change, I think!

  95. Anne S says:

    I’d make a hat for my 11 year old stepson. It can be tough to find sewing projects that he thinks are cool, and not babyish. But I think he’d love a hat. Thanks for the chance to win!

  96. Jess says:

    This looks like a great book. I’d love to win a copy! The first hat I’d make would be for my dad since my first attempt at making him a hat didn’t work so well I own him a good fitting hat! Thanks for the giveaway. πŸ™‚

  97. Maggie says:

    This book looks so neat! Thanks for the giveaway. I would probably make a hat for my sister. She is always so much fun and enjoys stuff like this.

    Is there anything cuter than a kid in a hat? I’d make a couple for my son!

  101. Heather says:

    My 2 year old just told me “I want a little girl hat, that one!” So, I guess I’d make 1 for her!

  102. Bailey says:

    I would make a hat for my 18m old son. He ‘signs’ hat all the time and I’m running out of hats for him since he had a growth spurt

  103. Lynette says:

    What a fabulous looking book! Two of my sons and both my daughters love, love, love hats! If I were to win this book I think I could “auction” off a hat to the highes chore bidder:) or just cause I love them.

  104. Janice Svercek says:

    Cute. I would make chef hats for all the little chefs in my life. They would love them.
