I stitched up something extra to go with the ruffle skirts I made for those 3 little girls. I had just enough of the Summer Ride print from the Wee Wander yardage I bought to sew a reversible bucket hat for each girl.
The pattern for these adorable hats can be found in Liesl Gibson's book:
I know I've mentioned before how I love this book (remember all those messenger bags I've made?), but it's worth saying again. Not only are Liesl's designs cute, but so well thought out and better yet, well written and easy to follow. You can't miss with her patterns and I highly recommend them based on my own experience.
|Just the right amount of brim to provide a respite from the summer sun.|
The design is perfect, comes in 4 sizes and I love how I was able to fussy cut the fabric so it looks as if the horses are galloping around the hats in a never ending run.
|From left to right are sizes Medium, Small and Large.|
To help the girls sort out which hat belongs to which girl, I made the inside or reversible option differ from one another. Okay, so there are 2 sewn up in dots, but not the same dots. ;o)
I do love a good hat pattern and this one will top off their summer outfits in pretty style, don't you agree?
