Reversible Bucket Hat
Here is my last project from "Oliver + S Little Things to Sew." My son requested a reversible bucket hat. It took a fair amount of work so I was relieved when it fit! He is 8 and the size 6-8 years, large, fit him perfectly. I didn't have any boy fabric so my friend Amy pulled through and hand delivered some fabric from her shop...gotta love that. I used Michael Miller's tiny gingham in lime and "Honk Honk" in brown.
I love that it is truly reversible. The hat wasn't difficult to make but it takes some time to clip the seam allowances and pin the hat pieces.
This part made my eyes crazy. When stitching the 1/4" top stitching around the brim, I had super tiny lime gingham spinning while I was focusing on trying to achieve perfect lines! It was so hard to look at!
I am on a kids' sewing kick at the moment. I am partly through two new dresses for the girls but then I am back to quilting. I have a couple of project planned but not yet started!
