A Boy's sunhat

This holiday it was all about hats for me. After making a sunhat for my little girl, it was my boy's turn to get a new hat. As I didn't have any boyish fabrics, I had to buy a quarter meter of some fabric, suitable for boys. I went to a local fabric shop and came across this "elephant" one and thought it could be made into a hat.

Although it looked simple to make I must confess that I had to make two tester hats before I got the size right. 
Now that the sunhat is ready I keep thinking that it would have looked better if I included a strip of white fabric or white piping to make the hat more attractive.

The thing I like most about making this hat is that it's something very practical and I'm sure it would be worn a lot during summer.
