ReP-A-R-E (RePurposing, Alterations, Repairs and Embellishments) #3

ReP-A-R-E (RePurposing, Alterations, Repairs and Embellishments) #3 is a super simple one.

Sometimes when I am out walking I prefer a hat to a hood or umbrella. However the hat sometimes blows off in the wind.
I had saved a section of dark green elastic cord from some walking trousers and used it to make a cord to hold the hat on.
I pulled the lining away from the hat and then used a narrow zigzag to attach the elastic cord to the lining.

I mostly wear it with the cord tucked under my hair, but if it gets more blustery I can tuck the cord under my chin for extra security.

I've had to do this with my straw sun hats. For some reason they are always too big. Maybe I have a tiny head! I've always used unsightly white elastic cord, and now your RePARE makes me realize I could look for a different color to match the hat.
