The last time I posted I spoke of completing one garment and the ‘Leave Your Hat On 2012’ challenge for September.
I didn’t complete a garment, but I did complete the hat. Although it’s completion date is today..
Elijah wouldn’t pose in the hat, so here it is on Milly. I used the Oliver + S bucket hat patterns and I have to say I’m not in love with it. Before I started I pictured myself churning these out for every child I know (that may be an exaggeration) but I’ll be lucky to find the motivation to finish Elijah’s second one! The sizing is a bit strange, based on Elijah’s measurements it should have fitted well with room to grow, but it’s quite snug and I don’t think we’ll get much more than a couple of month’s out of it. It’s still a cute hat though!
I can’t see me updating this blog much in the next month as I’m working hard on The Red Wren and getting Christmas stock ready to launch. Hopefully I’ll get to squeeze in some sewing for me though!
