However, necessity did point me in the direction of an easy little project for L. As the sun was shining on his head, and not finding a store nearby that sold baby-sized sun hats, I sought out a sewing pattern to protect that little noggin from the sun.
Enter this free pattern from Oliver + S, plus a hack to make it a touch easier from A Little Gray. And we have a reversible bucket hat for my little old man in waiting:
No, this is not just a lame attempt to share more pics of my baby. Totally not. Want another shot of that hat? Ok.
I'd show the reverse side, but I messed it up a bit so it's not great. But it does the job. I was actually going to make a second one now that I have the hang of the pattern, but I find most of my fabric is pretty girly, so I guess I'll have to order something a little manlier.
And sorry that I have no pics of the project in action. I was trying to get this done during naps, so it was a race against time!
