Make your own Derby Hat!

If you guessed that my next project was a Derby hat, then you were right! Not just any Derby hat, but one for less than $25.00, and I'm going to show you how to make one too!

I made hats last year for my mom and myself. Hers was pink and mine was a light tan, and they were a big hit at my Aunt's Derby party.

Haha! Thanks, Julee! For the nails, I like the nail polish strips from Sally Hansen. I get them at Target!

I need to make a bright hat for an event this year. I found this post so helpful!
