What I Made This Week, Part II
Having a little boy is fantastic in nearly every way, yet anyone who sews will tell you that the crafty opportunities just aren’t as exciting for the male of the species.
I do have the occasional urge to get girly with the colors and patterns. These two sweet hats are a custom order for twins in my neighborhood. Their mother sat them in front of the computer with an image of all my fabrics, and each chose her own colors.
From an ease-of-sewing perspective, I’m currently grooving on the reversible cloche pattern. Those patchwork hats are a lot of work! The cloche is considerably more simple, although it does require some fiddly attention where the six seams meet at the top. The only way to improve is practice, and so I just keep making more hats.
I climbed up onto my sewing desk today and strung a line from the curtain rod to a hook on the wall so I can store/display stock hats where they’re both visible and out of the way. I love walking into the room and seeing them hanging high above the machine. It’s not quite as charming as the “Caps for Sale” -style stack I had going before, but it’s much more practical.
