Bucket Hat

Warm weather is finally here so it's a perfect excuse to make bucket hats.

Digging through my vast stash I found plenty of airplane fabric that I used as lining on Mr. A's School Days jacket I made a few years ago.

I pared it with a FQ of blue cotton and whipped up a bucket hat for my next door neighbour.

He's 7 months old and the hat is size small from the Oliver + S book  Little Things to Sew.

Isn't he just the cutest little thing? Love those cheeks .... but oooh those thunder thighs!

Because babies love to pull off hats, I put in grommets either side of the hand and a thin strap to tie under his chin.  

The tie is a little long, but mum said it was okay and it would be something he can play with.

Off to make more hats!


  1. That is a darling hat. Great idea with the grommets and strap. Think I may have to pick up that book soon.

  2. Very cute! Sadly, my kids have all but outgrown this hat pattern now.

  3. So, so cute! Both neighbor and hats!

  4. This was such a great pattern, I wished it ran bigger.
    Cute little baby chub.
