Finally the new hat is finished


I was so sad when my mum lost this hat I made Ellyse, it was one of the first things I made her when I started sewing again.(she looks so little in that photo - and chubby!)

It was made from a thrifted sheet, but I just loved it. Unfortunately I threw the sheet out so couldn't replicate it, but finally I have made her another hat and I am in love!

I started this hat about 2 months ago and completely mucked up the brim, I got back to it today and finished it in about 20 minutes! It is a bit small for her now, will have to get another pattern, but she should get this summer out of it.

I just love the fabric which is by Heather Baily. I couldn't get a great photo but I have made it reversable.
