Free up some festive fun with Liberty Hattingdon

I was walking through the shops the other day and noticed the amount of 4th of July merchandise already lined up. Wow.

So I started thinking, if people are beginning to think and perhaps get ready, already, for Independence Day perhaps we would join in.

Liberty Hattingdon


Although Hattingdon has traditional flag inspired hats, the design that kept coming to mind is this one, Liberty Hattingdon.

More a headdress than a hat, it looks a bit like those souvenirs you find around New York doesn’t it?

Well, whatever it is or want to call it, it is darn cute and she has never looked more adorable.

How about some history on the lady who wears the original?


    “The Statue of Liberty was a joint effort between France and the United States, intended to commemorate the lasting friendship between the peoples of the two nations. The French sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi created the statue itself out of sheets of hammered copper, while Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel, the man behind the famed Eiffel Tower, designed the statue’s steel framework.

    “The Statue of Liberty was then given to the United States and erected atop an American-designed pedestal on a small island in Upper New York Bay, now known as Liberty Island, and dedicated by President Grover Cleveland in 1886.

    “Over the years, the statue stood tall as millions of immigrants arrived in America via nearby Ellis Island; in 1986, it underwent an extensive renovation in honor of the centennial of its dedication. Today, the Statue of Liberty remains an enduring symbol of freedom and democracy, as well as one of the world’s most recognizable landmarks.”

If you are in a New York state of mind there’s also Apple Hattingdon, and of course Checkers.

For something more traditional, like the red, white and blue, how about these stars and stripes inspired looks?

April Hattingdon

Sweet hats for Spring and Summer

Hattingdon has some lovely hats for Spring and Summer to wear and decorate your life.

April Hattingdon


April Hattingdon

First we take a look at the appropriately named April hat design.

Hattingdon is pretty in pink in this lovely classic hat that is embellished throughout with a flower and polka dot motif that gives it a fresh and lacy look.

Co-ordinating pink nosebobs with a dot in the center completes this fresh Springtime look.

Eden Hattingdon

Next up is the lovely Eden design.

Eden Hattingdon wears a stylish classic hat with a bright turquoise dome and olive green brim decorated with a leaf motif.

The hat has a lilac blue hatband and matching lilac blue nosebobs.

This is a great look for Spring and Summer apparel and decorating.



Lois Hattingdon

Now. How about the charming Lois hat design.

Don’t the stripes in those luscious colors of cantaloupe, lime and grape conjure up the good ol’ summertime fun.

This design is from Hattingdon’s “sweetheart hat” collection. The sweetheart hat features a big puffy dome with the tips of Hattingdon’s ears poking out and a large upturned brim.

This hat style is a perennial favorite among Hattingdon fans.

The brim is held in place by a fashionably large button in co-ordinating colors. Purple nosebobs.

Skylar Hattingdon

SKYLAR (4 Colors)

Skylar Hattingdon

And now we come to something rare in Hattindon’s world — a head covering that is not a hat.

Instead Hattingdon wears a scarf atop her lovely head. Meet the Skylar Hattingdon design.

The Skylar design features scarves in four colors: lime green, brightest blue, light pink and rich black. The scarves are patterned in three different sizes of polka dots.

Hattingdon wears these scarves wrapped around her head and tied in place with fluttering ribbons.

Perched on Hattingdon’s forehead are large dark high fashion (dare we say Jackie O) sunglasses trimmed in matching colors except for the black scarf design which features gold-rimmed sunglasses.

Quinn Hattingdon

Quinn Hattingdon


Ahoy there. Just one more.

She is delightful and another one from Hattingdon’s Sweetheart Hat Collection. Quinn Hattingdon.

Anyone who adores the nautical look will so enjoy wearing and displaying the Quinn Hattingdon design.

Hattingdon wears a sweetheart hat with a vibrant navy blue dome and brim. The brim is trimmed in red and held in place by an anchor. Matching red nosebobs.

Thank you.

We hope you enjoyed reviewing these Hattingdon hat designs with us and they make you smile. Hattingdon says after all, that is what a cartoon horse is all about.

Bye for now!

But the brim. Ooh la la. Look at those luscious red roses.

Matching red nosebobs.

Rosita Hattingdon

Get festive with Rosita Hattingdon

Rosita Hattingdon


Cinca de Mayo (or the fifth of May) is just around the corner.

And Hattingdon is ready with her sombrero-inspired hat design — Rosita!

Cinca de Mayo is celebrated in Mexico and the United States.

The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico’s Independence Day (the country’s most important national holiday) which is celebrated on September 16.

Of course you can get festive with Rosita any time at all.

Eve Hattingdon Black

Eve Hattingdon Black trends along with a very special apron

Eve Hattingdon Black


Eve Hattingdon Black — who wears a classic hat in basic black — is trending once again.

The classic hat design has a rounded dome with a medium brim.

In Hattingdon’s early years Eve was a perennial favorite.

Eve still has her fans, but it’s always fun to see her emerge again at the top of the popularity list.

Shoppers are gathering her up on all sorts of tee shirt styles, sweatshirts and hoodies, as well as mugs and postage.

Here’s what Eve looks like on a Women’s American Apparel Fine Jersey T-Shirt.
