We Will need 2 pattern testers for each size and version
We have all the testers now - thank you

Version 1 - 12m - 5t
                   5t - teen

Version 2 - 12m-5t

What you have to do:

1. Have 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
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, both of hat on its own and 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 (fabric that you can use an iron on)
1/4 yard of lightweight fabric for lining
1/4 yard of fusible fleece
small peice of stiff interfacing (like thin card)
bias binding for brim of hat
buttons, scraps of fabric, trims, ribbons etc. or anything else you would like to use for embellishment
matching thread, sewing machine (obviously!)

if you think you are up to being a tester - let me know by commenting below along with the size you would like to test and your contact info ** if you don't leave me your contact info either in your comment or in an email to heidiandfinn@hotmail.com, i will not include you in the drawing sorry

i will email you the pdf file once all the testers have been chosen (you will receive the pdf file with all the sizes although i will only need you to test the one size you are picked for)
I will be leaving this posting up for a day or so and then pick the testers using a random generator, that way it is fair to everyone that comments

thanks again everyone!
