After a long weekend of sunshine and outdoor play - resulting in a bit of sunburn, we decided that Miss P needed a new sun hat. She shopped the fabrics in my sewing room and picked a pretty floral print and a green batik for the lining.
She also suggested the rick rack trim. I think that was just the right touch for the edge of the brim. It also made turning and pressing the brim easier!
I used an old pattern that I had in my collection. Butterick 6613 from 1993.
I made the brim a tad wider and I think that will be better for days when we are out in the kayaks and canoe. The sun can get pretty intense out on the water. I think it turned out pretty cute.
Only seven and a half days 'till summer vacation!!! But who's counting?
I'm linking up with Amanda's finish it up Friday.
