Today I'm linking up with Solomon Sewing. Carmel is having a hat sew-along this month, and it piqued my interest basically because I had never made a hat, nor ever thought about making a hat, until I read her post! And then I thought, if I can actually make a hat, it would be THE perfect gift for birthdays and Christmas - so I got a move on.
If you read the sew-along post HERE, you will see that Carmel has given some fabulous examples of hat patterns and tutorials. I chose to make the Oliver + S Bucket Hat firstly because it was FREE and secondly because I have made a few of their patterns and Love them! They've won me over again with this little beauty. It was very simple to follow and the sizing was pretty spot on - for my kids' heads anyway. Obviously all children have different sized heads, so best you measure yours before you decide on a pattern!
The only thing I did differently during the process, was to follow another BLOG POST so that there was NO hand sewing involved! Much more my style.
This is the end result....

I have mentioned many times my dread of all things fiddly. This was not too fiddly at all - so it's a winner! Christmas - sorted!
