look who can sit up by himself now! yay, i love it when little babies can sit. it just cracks me up. he’s 5.5 months old.
my little guy’s new skill is all the more helpful to model a bucket hat that i made for our little 9-month-old friend, A. she has beautiful blue eyes, so i chose fabric in shades of blue to complement them. the pattern is the bucket hat from liesl gibson’s “little things to sew,” my second time making one. it’s a great pattern and has a really nice, finished result.
this side is a little white floral on a blue background, a fat quarter i got at joann fabrics.
it’s reversible, too. the other side is a sevenberry (japanese) print, a heavier cotton/canvas-y feel. i like how the print sort of looks like a john lennon sketch.
i made it in the 6-12 month size, because i tried O’s hat on A when we saw her recently and it fit with just a little growing room. that was great, because i didn’t need to retrace the pattern!
it does NOT fit on a large-noggined 3 year old…
…but she tried anyway.
