Despite my last failure of an attempt to make a hat for O, I set out to make another one (hoping that this one would actually fit her). Truth be told, I erred on the side of safety a bit which means that the hat came out a wee bit big (but that just means that it'll fit her for longer, right?)
The hat is the bucket hat from Oliver and S Little Things to Sew, which you've probably seen approximately one million times all over the internet because it's just that adorable. The fabric is Georgina by Tina Givens and it just so happened to be sitting on my shelf for the past two years or so. I couldn't find anything in my stash that coordinated well with the fabric so I took the lazy man's route and just used the same fabric for the inside and the outside of the hat (which totally defeats the whole point of it being reversible. Oh well).
What cracked me up while making this hat was that when I showed O the fabric and asked if she would like a hat made out of it, she look at me as if was crazy and said "No! That's for dolly!" She then ran into her room and pulled out a doll that was wearing a little dress made from the same fabric. How the hell did she remember that? (And for the record, that little dress was actually supposed to be for her, but there were some "sizing issues" and so it ended up on the creepy looking doll instead).
Personally I think the two of them look pretty damn cute together!
