Chameleon Hat Spring Logo.jpg
Another month has gone by and it’s time to reveal the next Chameleon Hat! April brings us the Spring Fling version, in bright colors, with a wide band and contrasting band cord, rolled brim, and adorned with curly cues and rose buds. This one is perfect as an Easter Bonnet too! I extended the brim and designed it to curl up and roll for a little drama! Add the flowers, curls or something of your own choosing, most of all have FUN!  ~Maria~
