Isis - I have just posted in another bit of the forum about your hat before seeing this post! I will now go back and read your guide.
And, I will, eventually post some pics (when I work out how to!)Mine looks a little different from yours, probably the materials (and all that stiffner!!) I have had lots of nice feedback for the hat, but it was like making an origami puzzle, wasn't it? The instructions were awful and if it wasn't for help from other Loungers I'dve given up.
