PRINTING NOTE: This is a checklist pattern; it is not necessary to print the entire pattern if you prefer not to use the checkboxes for each section.
I had this idea to make a bobber hat for a child of parents who run a resort in Northern Minnesota. It turned out so cute that I decided to design the Bobber hat. I used the red and blue theme because the colors popped but using more realistic fish buttons would be a great option. Out of that idea, came the concept for adding themed buttons to other children’s hats, so I designed a companion piece called the Boxed Buttons Hat.
Boxed Buttons Hats are the companion pieces to the Best Bobber Hats that I designed for a child of parents who run a resort in Northern Minnesota. The hat turned out so cute, that I decided to design a hat full of buttons for kids to display their favorites. Themed buttons are available in abundance and children would have fun choosing from farm animals, monsters, panda bears, butterflies, fish and more. Add any themed buttons or maybe use some from Grandma’s collection.
