Making the Flower
change to your 3.5mm hook, US E
ch 3, sl st to beginning st to form a ring.
ch 3, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sl st into last ch, then sl st into ring, ch 3 and repeat 4 or 5 more times or as many petals as you like.
Putting it all together
First sew your flower onto your hat. Then stuff your hat.
Then sew the bottom part to the hat using the whip stitch, skipping 2 sts in between, and pulling snug, this will give you a ruffle look to your edge.
Now with the flower facing you, line up your needle to be in the center left and grab your metal barrette. Like picture shows below.
Making sure that the barrette opens to the left, sew your barrette on by first going between the barrette, then into your hat.
After doing this a few times you can wrap your yarn around your barrette a few times before continuing to sew through middle and the hat again.
Make it snug against hat and your done!
TIP: Helps the hat not to droop if you sew the brim together in the middle somewhere next to the barrette, just work a X pattern to make it snug.
