Hat Parade #2


Mellita of Sew Hot Right Now had buckets of fun making two hats using left over fabric from other projects.


Mellita used the Oliver + S Bucket Hat pattern, which is available as a free download.


Jenni has also made two hats using the Oliver + S Bucket Hat pattern. Jenni has never made a hat before, either. I really like the John Deere hat. I reckon I could easily round up maybe half a dozen little (tractor-loving) boys that I know would love one of those.


If you are looking for some hat-wearing tips, Nikki has posted some on her blog, along with the hats she has been busy making.

Cocos Loft Sunhat

Coco of Coco's Loft has made her hat using Vogue 7600. Coco used fabric left over from making a blouse. It has a lovely wide brim.

Have you got some scraps in your stash that you could turn into a hat? You have nothing to lose. There is still plenty of time to join in. Some people have already made two hats. Some of them even in the first week and without having ever made a hat before. This means that potentially, someone of any skill could make eight or more hats in the month of September..... or at least one!


Oh, and don't feel like you need to have a blog in order to join in. You don't have to have a web-address to add yourself to the list, just leave that bit blank. Let me know when you've finished your hat and we can add it to the flickr group and talk about it in here. The more the merrier!
