Earlier this month, I showed you a couple of sewing projects, where I was having some trial and error with tunic sewing. I did end up with 2 completely wearable tunics, it’s just that one of them is too big for me.
Anyway . . . whoever does clothes making knows that you always end up with a fair amount of fabric scraps (or is it just me?). I’ll probably use some of my leftover tunic fabric for patchworking, but I was still on a roll with sewing patterns, so wanted to see if I could actually make something else out of my grey floral fabric. And found the perfect project!
I made a baby’s sun hat! NewLook # 6274.
Another learning curve for me . . . who’d have thought I’d be trying my hand at making a hat one day? With the hot summer here, and 9 month old little girl just opposite, soon to be going to Corsica for the summer holidays, I decided to make and gift the hat as an un-birthday present for July.
I had asked the Mum beforehand for baby’s head measurement which corresponded perfectly to the pattern size M. And it fits!
Hmmmm . . . little neighbour isn’t quite sure if it matches her pink PJs.
She’s not even sure you’re supposed to wear a hat when you’re almost ready for bed.
I’ll definitely be making a few more baby hats in future!
