The February weather outside IS frightful.
But inside, it’s full-blown spring and summer since my latest sewing project is spread all over the house.
I love making these little unlined fabric hats. They’re light, washable, simple to sew and a good home for lots of old tablecloth (and other) cottons from my stash.
Plus my dermatologist is always telling me to cover that big cow lick on the back of my head.
My pattern came from an old hat that belonged to my dear friend Megan’s mom. Sorry, there are no “before” photos since we had to take the original hat apart apart to figure it out.
There was no interfacing in the original and I’m putting none in my hats. Instead, I’m adding rows of stitching to give the brim body.
The lack of interfacing also makes the hat more breathable–which will be a big asset when the weather FINALLY warms up. (It is supposed to be warm here in NC!)
Still trying to pick a favorite–with more on the cutting table. What do you think?
