Did you spot it?

So this hat only took me about 2 years to make. (The Boy started but never finished some embroidery for the “plain” side. Eventually he forgot all about it and I ended up re cutting that side from some dark green linen, which I think looks rather nice with some gold topstitching.)

Yet another reversible bucket hat from the Oliver and S pattern that I sized up long ago.  Finally finished for the walk and admired by a passing walker (wearing a baseball cap and envious of its superior 360 degree shade). Then it was left in the park the very next day and is now waiting safely for collection at my friends house. Sigh.

(I haven’t really been trying to take part in Me Made May this year, but I have been wearing something me made everyday because I generally do these days and quite often at least one other member of my family is wearing something me made too.  On the walk I had on my Mila Moose shirt, The Boy had this new hat, The Girl had her old hat and LSH was sporting the rucksack I made him.)

  1. Great hat. I made a vintage one of these years ago and had trouble easing the base to the rim. I must give it another try!
