Eyelet Baby Hats

I made my first Etsy sale!!  The customer is a really lovely woman that wanted to buy two baby hats for her the upcoming arrival of two baby boy grandchildren!  They aren't twins either--both her daughter and her daughter-in-law are pregnant.  The hat I had for sale she loved, but wanted it in a blue or green colour.  Here is what I came up with:

I think they are gorgeous colours, and not just because I made them!  Here is the pattern if you are interested in making on yourself.
