tonight, i made a bucket hat
with elephants on one side
it’s this pattern
from this book
the fabric is tiny elephants by daiwabo, lined with natural linen. i made it in the 6-12 month size for my son, who is a december baby and HATES the sunshine. lucky for him, he hasn’t had to “deal with it” much yet this year.
a few things:
- my plan is to try to sew projects that have been on my mind or my to do list for a while. i’ve wanted to sew something from “little things to sew” because i adore oliver + s patterns, and this bucket hat was great! next up is a dress from “carefree clothes for girls,” which i’ve been itching to sew from for over a year but the patterns start at size 4 and my daughter wasn’t big enough yet. i think she is now.
- i work at an office all day and sew after the kids are in bed at night during the week. this will make natural-light photography and photos of clothing on bodies very difficult (if not impossible) if i’m planning to blog in a timely manner this week. sorry if my artificial light photos assault your eyes.
- i think i’m going to post whatever i finish each evening, then do a round up of everything later with the kids actually wearing it during the daytime. i think that’ll work.
- doubt i’m going to get a lot of sleep this week. i’m okay with that.
