Firstly, you may be wondering why I named this ‘The Paper Bag Hat’. I did so due to the way I have chosen to close the top of the hat. It reminded me of the old-fashioned brown paper bags from my days working in a local Supermarket.

I started as a Checkout Chick in my teens and the registers were all push button (but not in the digital sense). I would have to ask each customer if they would like a box or a bag for their purchases. If they wanted a bag I would grab one from the pile of neatly stacked brown paper bags and open it up. They had a square bottom and the sides had a concertina fold. So totally different from the tons of plastic bags that are in Know doubt many people over the years would also love me to put a paper bag over my head so now I can!
