For those of us who are all about wearing fabulous accessories, let me present The Bow-tastic Hat!! This hat allows for you to interchange the bow in order to match your #OOTD (outfit of the day)!! This winter wear provides lots of chances to take one item and change it up to match several things in your child’s (or your own) wardrobe without investing in numerous looks! Perfect for keeping things to a minimum while getting the maximum looks from one great piece!
Please check the “NOTES” section of my pattern to find ways to adjust the sizing on this hat.

This activity was prompted because I was cleaning up my bag and found some packets of hot sauce and a diaper in my yarn tote! LOL I realized that I can’t be the only one who has this problem. I remembered playing a “What’s In Your Bag?” game at a bridal shower some time ago, and decided to make a game out of this to share with all of you!
