Summer hat

My husband was watching football last night and since I was not interested in that, I decided to sew something simple. I decided to make Emma a new summer hat. The pattern is from Ottobre design magazine (summer 3/2010). Very simple and cute, and most importantly, very useful.

In hindsight, I should have used a bit sturdier lining fabric, since the hat is a bit soft and not so structured. I used starch when I ironed it and that helped a bit. Unfortunately my ironing skills are really bad, the hat is still wrinkled. The lining is the remains of an old white sheet, the pink and white fabric I got from my mother, probably comes from my grandmother's stash.

Yes, she is naked. I barely managed to get her to put on a cardigan... She is also missing two teeth. She lost them last week and we were only aware of one tooth moving. Anyway, she tripped over and left her teeth to the living room carpet. Now she is very proud of the gap, she thinks it makes her look a lot more grown up!
