Daydreaming


I am starting to daydream about dahlia bulbs and looking for shells on the beach....
Oh yes, and wearing my new sunhat.
This is the Amy Butler sunhat pattern. I used Freshcut fabric for the top, and an Amy Butler print from her Lotus line for the lining.

The size small fits a small child, but since Anna is only two, I did a little gathering around the crown, and made the brim about an inch smaller so it would fit her.



I guess the February sunshine will have to do for now.

Wow, another beauty you have created. You should start an ETSY store. I could see my little one loving that hat.

So cute! You did a great job. Love the pattern and color choice too!

I'd like to make one but it looks pretty hard! Is it?

Charming floppiness!! I think the first photo is one to save and reminisce about 20 years from now!

Beautiful! I bought some Amy Butler patterns- I can't wait to start! I have to finish to other projects first- and since the kids are out of school we have been doing a lot of going into the city etc. A nice little balance- I can't take myself away from my sewing machine sometimes, most times!
