  1. I would want the brown one (pic at the bottom of the 4) because I would like to give it to my sister who is going through chemo right now for breast cancer. Her hair was brown so I thought maybe she would like the brown one so she could still have brown on her head. (maybe when she glances at herself in the mirror, it will look like she has her normal hair???) Anyway, I love them all but I would choose brown. :)

  2. I would pick the Black one with the grey/black flower…cause I have a lot black in my wardrobe. I just think its too cute…although I would like any one of the colors.

    Serene Kjar

  3. Oooh I like them all! but I guess I would take the black one.

  4. oh yeah and by the way, since you asked, I'll take the black one.

  5. You know what's a great idea? If I get the black one.

  6. I would look great wearing the black one.

  7. Pick me, pick me!!!! pretty please…..black is my fave.

  8. Erin Downs
    I would pick the cream colored one because it could go with several different colors and its stinking cute! :)

  9. HMMMM I guess my first question would be….
    What made you want to start this blog?

  10. How do you have enough time in your day to do all of these cute things?

  11. I LOVE them all! I love hats and beanies, but especially these ones because they still look feminine. I think I'd have to go with the black and brown ones though because they go with my wardrobe more… but, red is my favorite color…

  12. yessss…i'm the first comment :). gosh, i like them ALL! if i have to pick one though, um…i'd pick the cream w/brown flower, or brown w/cream flower :)…just bc they would match my daily wardrobe. but they are ALL stinkin' cute!

  13. Personally I like the red one as it would add a splash of color during the gray Oregon winters. However, as these would be worn by my wife, I think she would go for the black or the brown for ease of pairing with her wardrobe.

  14. They are all way cute, If I win and get to pick, I want the cream one. Thanks guys.

  15. creme..because you could wear it with any color!

    Amber Sampson

  16. They are all way cute, if I win and get to pick I want the cream one. Thanks guys

    Wendy Jackman

  24. I'd choose the brown/creme one just because it would go with more things, but I love the red one!

  25. On this model I like the cream colored one the best. I think it goes best with her coloring. I like the colors you chose in general and they look more "grown up" with the vintage flower, vs the ones I have my daughter wear….

  26. I like the Creme colored kufi cap because it goes with so much, and stinking cute! But the Brown kufi cap with a creme colored vintage flower would make me buy the brown shoes and wear brown more.

  34. I hope these don't all have to be design questions!

    What are your favorite books? (I'm an English teacher so it really interests me what other people choose to read, or IF they choose to read.)

  35. Also what's the average amount of time that you'd spend per project to really make it cheaper than going out and buying it?
