My son asked if I could make him a new Bucket hat. He saw some road signs fabric I had recently bought and thought that would be different than what he had already.

He prefers this style of hat as he shaves his head and also the brim protects his ears from sunburn. The ears can get Skin Cancer from too much Sun.
I didn't make the pattern it was a commercial one I bought a while ago but still current. But I am sure there probably is one online. This one is fully lined and all cotton and can be thrown in the wash.
No the head is not him I just used it to show the hat better.

Great job on this hat Barbara. We came back from Canberra in late August and the amount of road kill was dreadful. Motorists don't slow down enough for our poor fauna. Love Chris

Yes I know it is awful but there are so many Kangaroos that just jump out in front of the cars with little or no warning.

Thank you. Funny thing is if we wanted to buy one in the shops it would have a tag on it Made in China. All our Australian souvenirs are made over there.

Have been tempted at times when he was younger. Now he is all grown up and is my number 1 fan.

with the unusual material, is the hat an eye-cacher, hugs Maria

These are road signs we have in the country in Australia to tell you to be careful they maybe crossing the road so you don't run them over and kill them.
