Not quite what you're looking for but purple bandanas here

Oh thanks - they do look nice but I think I want a sunhat iyswim

What about buying plain white ones and dyeing them?

Katymac Fri 07-Aug-09 14:06:29

Do you think they would dye?

That's a good idea

I love the legionnaire one but I have to buy 12 or so - so it's a bit expensive

I now have to ask what you need them for.................? <nosey emoticon!>

As long as they are 100% cotton, you can dye them quite easily. The thread used to stick the hems/seams etc may not dye, if it is a manmade fibre, but that wouldn't really matter, I don't suppose.

You should look into a corporate t-shirt printing place that does hats as well, my mum had some done for a charity thing, you can choose any colour you want, I think they ordered 20 at £1.75 each. You might only be able to get caps though.

Sorry I should have said - I'm a childminder & I want them for my children

I thought a really good summer hat & a beanie in my uniform colours would look really nice (& be an aid to spotting them when on a trip out iyswim)

I can get the beanie from a workwear catalogue but (as hippopotamouse said) I can only get caps

You could even tie-dye them. I remember tie-dyeing as a child in the '70s and it was pretty straight forward, a bucket, string, rubber gloves and some dye IIRC.

Hmm - not to sure about tie-dying tbh but I might try ordinary dying

You can buy dye that you use in the washing machine, so it's really easy. I think you just pierce the little capsule, shove everything in the machine and run a wash.

I like that idea
