Frequently Asked Questions for Bound to be Creative handmade hats

Hello! Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about my handmade hats! 

Do you make custom hats?  
Short answer is YES I can customize an existing hat style of mine to make bigger or smaller for you.  For example: you have a large head size and want one of my hats - yes, I can bump up the size to fit your beautiful large head.  If you love one of my hats after trying it on and while having a conversation with me perhaps it may need some adjustments - then YES, I'd be happy to customize it for you.

How do I measure my head?
I encourage all shoppers to measure their heads if possible before ordering. Wrap a flexible measure tape/string around from the just above eye brows to over ears (not above ears) and to the back of your head about to your hair line ends in back of head. Mark with your finger the measurement or measure the string with your ruler. See HOW TO MEASURE MY HEAD page for a visual on where the tape should go.

If you still have questions about fitting your hat, get in touch! I'm happy to work with you to come up with a plan that fits best.


Can my hat be washed?  
Yes! All my fabric is prewashed.  All but my wool hats can be washed in cold, gentle cycle and is recommended to air dry flat or line dry.  A light iron is encouraged after the wash, DO NOT iron the Bound to be Creative label and DO NOT IRON FLEECE HATS.

Can I wash my HIP Mini?

What if my order is a gift?  

Send me note confirming that this is to be delivered to the desired address.  I gift wrap in tissue paper and can place a special note in the package and will not send an invoice with the gift.
