Unintentional Imperial Officers Cap (for babies).

We all know how sun-sensitive a baby's noggin is and how important it is to protect said noggin in a stylish way. It seems the preferred method of summer baby head covering is a bucket hat. It's not my fave. I mean, pretty much anything you put on a baby is cute, but I thought I could do better. I wanted to make a couple of light weight caps that would keep Jack's delicate skin safe AND look awesome. Here is the first attempt.

I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, but something kept nagging at me. It looked familiar somehow. It struck me this evening while going through the pictures I took for this post. Jack looks a little bit like Veers...

Completely unintentional but as anyone who knows me would say, a happy accident. Perhaps I have the beginnings of the best family Halloween costume theme ever?

Some people have expressed an interest in this hat. Would anyone bother reading a tutorial or downloading a pattern if I made one?
