Project Cubbins: Hat 353 - Think Tink Edition

Day 353 / Hat 353: White, baseball-style cap with front panel and bill printed with swirling blue, pink and white flowers and Tinker Bell (wearing a strapless green dress). Additional detail includes the word "Tink" in pink embroidery emblazoned with tiny pink crystals.

Plucked at random for today's installment of the Project from the MRBOH, methinks this child-sized cap belongs to her darling daughter Ava.

If you're not familiar with the modern iteration of Tink (although there is no date -- or any tag whatsoever for that matter -- anywhere on the hat, this appears to be the version of the winged urchin circa the 2008 animated movie), here's a little blurb about her from the Disney Fairies website (yes, there is one!):

"Tinker Bell is both sweet and sassy. She is loyal to her friends and will help fix their problems like a true Tinker Fairy. She loves adding lost things to her collection and going on adventures."

True Tinker Fairy indeed.


PC 352: Funky Teal Fedora
PC 351: I Messed with Texas
PC 350:  Whole Earth

Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?
A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which celebrated the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1
