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!
