Hampton Hat - Pattern Testers Needed! CLOSED -thank you

We Have all the testers now - Thank you!
Our new pattern is ready and needs your help!
The Hampton Hat is the essential modern little girls accessory! Fitted bucket-style that is fully lined and padded with fleece to give it a weighty and 'real hat' feel (not those thin cotton floppy hats)
We Will need 2 pattern testers for each size range 12m-2T
What you have to do:
1. intermediate to advanced sewing experience (nothing against newbies and not that this is a hard pattern to sew, i just need people who have used a lot of patterns before and know what makes sense :) )
2. Item to be finished in 1 Week or less of getting the pattern(this should only take you a couple hours anyway)
3. Check pdf for spelling mistakes or pattern labeling mistakes, or any other mistakes (...there are probably a lot :) )
4. Provide a good Picture of the finished product, preferably in action on a little one (Bonus **if it is a great picture and we use it on our website - you could get even more free patterns! yay)
....not too hard right?
what you need:
1/4 yard of lightweight to med. weight material for outer shell
1/4 yard of lightweight material for lining
1/4 of fusible fleece or heavy interfacing
matching thread, sewing machine (obviously!)
fabric flowers, crocheted flowers, feathers, buttons....or any other embellishment you would like
If you think you are up to being a tester for us - please comment below with the size you would like to test (although you will be getting the full pdf will all the sizes i want you only to test the one size) along with your contact info.
I will pick the testers on first come, first serve, so comment soon!

I will be in touch with the 'chosen ones' in a day or two with the pdf

good luck!
