I adore patriotic colors and collections and the new Pride Collection has the look of vintage patriotism. Here is a close-up of the great little tags and graphics that are part of this collection.
(the hat pattern and simple instructions were from my pal Maggi Harding)
Here is a hat model - Escape Kitty looking rather proud and patriotic. I think she's smiling - can't tell.
No Yankee Doodle Dandy Hat can be complete without a feather in it. The feather is a reference to a popular American song, Yankee Doodle Dandy.
Yankee Doodle Dandy Song Kid's Version ( Popular American Song)
Yankee Doodle went to town
A-riding on a pony
He stuck a feather in his hat
And called it macaroni
Yankee Doodle, keep it up
Yankee Doodle dandy
Mind the music and the step
and with the girls be handy!
Father and I went down to camp
Along with Captain Gooding
And there we saw the men and boys
As thick as hasty pudding.
Grab your Authentique collection while it's available and show your Pride.
(Thanks again Maggi for the hat pattern!)
