Bucket family

Not Charlie Bucket and clan, but bucket hats. I made a complete set for all our noggins. It was my first attempt at sizing up a pattern (from the Little Things to Sew pattern) and it worked pretty well! I used Robert Kaufman Essex for all three exteriors. My husband declined a “fun” lining, so his hat has olive green in the crown only, but I did sneak in some green top stitching. My navy blue hat has Liberty Hot Pink Wiltshire as the lining. The Tana Lawn is so silky smooth it’s perfect for lining a hat. It would be excellent for a baby’s senstitive skin–plus you would only need a teense.

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.
