Flowered Beanie needed a little update. Maybe something floppy (which you all know I love!), maybe with a little more texture, and maybe some different, bigger flowers. Well, that's how my Flowers & Pearls Floppy Hat came into being! I think it is so much fun, and gives me a retro vibe while still maintaining a modern style. I love clothing like that, and will likely be continuing to do more projects for this little 'collection'!
