Day 47. Boo-Yah Bucket Hat

The 90’s called, and told me I needed to design this hat. 😄

The 90’s gave us lots of things, like bucket hats and the saying “Boo-Yah”. I couldn’t resist. I was born in 88 so I know the 90’s pretty well. I had a denim bucket hat, and reversible Calvin Klein bucket hat, and yes, a green fuzzy bucket hat with the plastic inflatable backpack to match. Cringe.

I really liked designing this hat because buckets are definitely making s comeback!
This hat is also really great for beginners who want to use/learn the very basic stitches(HDC,sc,tc) all in one hat!
