I just finished and opted to make it without the fabric flowers, but I still may add some later. Here is the finished product with real flowers.
Do you like the crocuses just popping up?
Elastic in the back.
This was an extremely simple pattern to make, and I was able to use some of my stash. The only problem with the instructions is that they have you cut out the fusible fleece for the brim and interfacing for the top. The instructions never say to attach these pieces to the fabric. However, even a beginner could figure that out. Also, the illustrations weren't that helpful. On the other hand, I like how the instructions were in booklet form and spread out a bit. I would recommend this pattern for any level of sewist. In fact, I am going to make another.
