do you want to be your own bonnet artist? then you've come to the right place! with our custom bucket option, you can choose your own fabric combination to make a hat as unique as you are!
Here's how a custom hat works:
1. purchase this listing, and make a note about your favorite fabrics, colors, images, etc in the two fabric slots.
2. Colette (our owner & creative director) will email you with an image of fabrics that meet the criteria you describe.
3. You give Colette feedback on the fabrics... and she will continue to send images until you have found the two PERFECT fabrics for you!
usually custom bonnets take about 7-14 days to ship. if you're in a super hurry, though, please email us & we'll do our best to meet your needs!
*Please note that custom items cannot be returned or exchanged.*
*if you want us to order fabrics for you, please contact us, as there are additional fees associated with using fabrics not available in our studios.*
Our Pixie Gnome Hats make the perfect addition to any wardrobe. With patterns to suit boys and girls, and a timeless design that's decidedly gender-neutral, even Dad will love this hat!
Our winter version is lined with Polartec® fleece and designed for full ear coverage, these hats are perfect for any winter weather, no matter how nasty Mother Nature might get! Wind, sleet, cold, snow... it's all easy if your little is wearing a Pixie Gnome hat. Well, maybe not EASY... but they certainly will stay warm and dry.
Our summer version is made of two layers of cotton, for fantastic sun protection. Like all of our hats it's rated UPF 50+.
Both summer and winter hats feature a sweet and generous brim that can be worn out for extra sun protection or folded back to show the inside fabric or fleece.
Like all of our other hats, they are reversible, machine washable, handmade in USA (in Ohio, to be exact), and feature our trademark adjustable snap strap that allows for a flexible and custom fit.
Our Pixie Gnome Hats come in 4 sizes, and are designed to last a good, long time. Our kid size, for example, will last from about 14 months to about 14 years! REALLY! Even mom and dad can get in on the fun, since we also offer these hats in a grown-up size!
We've found that kids love these hats! They're comfortable and our brimmed summer version provides excellent sun protection, but best of all they have LOTS of imaginative play value. Similar to our wildThings ear hats in that they're as much fun as they are function, Pixie Gnome hats are a hat kids WANT to wear. So come on, join us. Join in the fun! And make sure to tag us in your photos!
The best and most reliable way to size a hat for your darlin' guy or gal is to measure their head circumference.
Age and/or clothing size is usually not the best way to size for a hat.
Our Bonnets, Caps, and Buckets come in 6 sizes. Our smallest size fits most newborns and our largest size fits most kids ages 4 and up-- and even adults! Buckets and Caps run true-to-size. Bonnets run large. Our winter hats are lined with a thick, warm fleece and tend to run small … so for those, if you’re in doubt, size up.
Our Pixies, Pilots, and wildThings come in 4 sizes: infant, baby, kid, and adult. Again, measuring your child’s head is the best way to determine size.
We normally ship orders within 1-3 business days for in-stock items. But, since we're a small company, sometimes we are a little slower. If you need your order **FAST** please email us and we'll do everything we can to accommodate your request. Remember to add our packing time to the actual time in transit when you’re calculating when your order will arrive.
Once your package ships we'll send another email with a link so you can track your order & know exactly when it'll arrive on your doorstep. If you live in the US, you can expect your order to arrive within about 1 week, usually within 3-5 days. If you're an international client, things are more complicated (and slower) because of both distance and customs.
