Bucket hat

Childcare is getting real. Im so bummed i feel like i was given a baby for 9 months and then i have to give him back 😦 Im hoping that i can eventually go part time but it will depend on my work and in the past colleagues have been denied part time changes. So i have been sewing for my little man. First up was a bucket hat. I used Charlie + S pattern. The pieces worked well but the instructions leave something to be desired. I had made a similar reversable sailors hat for him before he was born so i knew the theory but these instructions had me stumped when it came to sewing the caps in palace. As you can see my first attempt failed, badly…

My second attempt worked but im not a fan of how they attach the second cap. I think i will use the other method which means sewing two different hats then sewing them together and turning right way out. Much more straight forward. Unfortunatley its a little snug even though its the 6-12month size, but Rue does have a big head so i will make another in the next size up too.

Other than that i love bucket hats. Was thinking of adding a chin strap incase its windy and maybe some air vents in the top so his head doesnt get too hot.
