Introduction

I remember the day in September 2009 when I was contacted by two photographers who wanted me to design hats with flowers on them for their photo shoots. As I was sewing the flowers onto the hats, it hit me! Why was I making the hat so final when I could just add a button to it? Then the wearer could interchange the flowers to create a true masterpiece perfect for any occasion. At that moment, Bouquet Beanies was born!

I love to create new styles and designs. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I complete a new pattern. They are like my children—unique and beautiful in their own way, and I’m so excited to share them all with you!

Enjoy, have fun and let your creativity shine!
