It was a rainy yucky weekend here, so I decided to take on a new project. I wanted to make a summer hat for Monkey – he is not fond of any kind of hat, so I figured a reversible bucket hat with chin straps would be my best bet. Getting back into sewing has been fun and this project was a great one to test out my sewing skills on.
I picked two coordinating blue spotted fabrics I found on sale for my first try. Using some free online patterns I altered them to create the right fit for Monkey. I used a medium strength stabilizer, and would suggest getting the iron on, rather than the sew only for ease of use.
And look how it turned out…
It is fully reversible too! I love it and can’t wait to make a couple more for him.
I still need to add the velco to the chin straps, but overall I am really impressed with how it turned out (and I think he kind of liked it, well at least for the pictures).
Now if only we can get some sunny weather so Monkey can wear it outside!!!
