As most of you know, I live in a small town quite far from any major shopping centers (as in 7hrs minimum), so often when I see a certain style/trend in a magazine that I'd like to try I have to either wait until I head to a city (I'm not patient enough for that), shop online (shipping here costs outrageous amounts), or I can try to make it myself.  That is what happened when I saw a fun printed cap (for $350!!) in my latest Harpers Bazaar issue.  I've made hats before (here's a tutorial for one), so I knew that I should be able to put together my own high fashion ball cap!  Brocade was the first type of fabric that entered my mind, and I just happened to have a few brocade scraps laying around.  Tomorrow I'll post the instructions so you can make your own!

PS.  I've left the snow behind, and am most likely laying out in the warm Arizona sun as you read this!
Or more realistically, chasing my three year old around the pool while trying to entertain (or feeding) a 3 month old...haha!
