We have a bit of a hat obsession in our house — an obsession which I encourage during these hot, sunny summer months. As the Australians say: Slip, Slop and Slap — slip on a shirt, slop on some suntan lotion and slap on a hat (do correct me if I have got that one wrong).
I love little straw hats but, as ours do get lost on a regular basis, I am finished with buying anything expensive. So I decided to do a little customisation job and am pretty happy with the results! I picked up some simple, little straw hats from a hat shop here in Paris (I love this place, I don’t think it has changed in 50 years) and some pretty ribbons from another one of my favourite places, Entree des Fournisseurs.
I glued the ribbons on with fabric glue and results were really cute. Problem is now I REALLY don’t want to girls to loose their hats! I have added a few photos of how I customised the hats… it is so easy, I think it took me about 10 mins to do!
