Too soon??

Sun hats. Too soon??


We have booked a sunny holiday, going on an aeroplane for the first time in our family years. We are all quite excited. So I started going mad for summer stuff even though everyone else is desperate for a glimmer of Spring sunshine. So bear with...


The pattern is from issue 15 of Sewing magazine. The girls liked it because it has a place for a pony tail to pop out the back. Little M liked it too because I could adjust the back for her teeny head.



I used scraps of this and that, a fat quarter here and there, reached for some ric rac and then headed over to my crochet flower display on my basket in the front room and selected a few flowers.



I know, it really is too soon for this type of senseless happiness but I simply love making things.

  12. The hats are adorable, Jo. What a nice idea to make customized hats for the girls. They look very happy wearing them. I love that patchwork fabric; I had a dress in fabric like that when I was a baby. I put it on my dolls when I got older. Totally 70's. I love that you can still get something like it!
