This makes a cute hat to protect you from the sun. You can make it for yourself or even little kids or babies. It has a kinds of floppy tulip shape that really protects against the sun.
You can make both sides of the hat from the same fabric or from different coordinating fabrics for a more interesting look. One person says they use denim from old jeans for these & they look good with pieces from different colors of jeans. You can embellish the hat with ribbons, trim, fabric flowers, etc. Have fun making it your own. Your teens might like making these this summer and selling them. The original poster says that she sells these on etsy.com.
