New hat for Lilly - cowgirl style!

Lilly needed a new hat... and I need to test out my new sewing machine. The style of hat I usually make is quite time consuming (you will see what I mean later on when I get around to doing a blog on the 'evolution of leftleg hats'). So I made a new style of hat (excuse the grubby face!):

It can be worn two ways, wide brim sun hat, or grooving cowboy/girl style:

I just have to work out an easier way to construct so I can make some for my market stall - I'm sure there's got to be a few kids out there want a cool hat that no-one else has! (PS. Can you see that I haven't quite finished and there are pins holding up the sides? I'm deciding between snaps and buttons - leaning towards buttons.)
