Spring Hat Design: Name it and Win it!


While it's hardly been above 0 around here lately, I can't stop thinking of Spring! Weather changing, leaves budding, color everywhere, and of course it means I won't need a heavy jacket! With all this in mind, I set out to design the perfect hat for the new season. I used brightly colored linens and twills and made a simple brim piece that hangs low and looks really cute. The thing I love most about it are the clean lines and the wide band. While I can list all the things I like about it, I can't sum it all up in a few words. So I figured I would ask for some help! Come up with a name for my new Spring design and win one for yourself!

This contest will run until the end of this Saturday the 7th. Enter as many names as you can think of in one comment, each name counts for one entry. On Sunday I'll pick the one that seems most fitting and that person will win a hat in their color choice (10 in all to choose from! Seafoam and Berry are pictured) and in their size. Please leave an email address so I can contact the winner!

Good luck everyone, I can't wait to see what you come up with!
