What are you most proud of? Super happy with the whole collection, of which this hat was part of. For more information about my "Liberation" collection, please see http://www.craftydiversions.com/patterns/liberation.htm What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you can work flat and know how to seam, you'll know how to make this hat. You'll just need to take extra care in seaming to make the ruching pretty.
