Bucket hat

This bucket hat was a snap to make–thanks to the excellent pattern from Liesl Gibson in her book Little Things to Sew. My daughter is on the cusp of being too old for all the patterns in this charming book, so I had to make something quick. I finished this hat in a morning, just in time to head out into the Florida sunshine.

Here is a peak at the interior fabric–Walk in the Woods from Moda.

  1. Am I too old to wear a bucket hat? I want one. I love the red/red riding hood combo. Brilliant. Is the red fabric Kona? The photo of little B’s blue eyes under the brim is great.

    • Bucket hats are for everyone. The red fabric is Robert Kauffman Essex, which is a cotton linen blend. It has some weight to it–I bought it for a skirt, so am making that next. I am going to try and increase the size of the bucket hat pattern. If I’m successful you’ll have to let me know what color you would like!
