Handmade Summer Hat

It's it hot and humid where you are?  Holy heck.  My hair is doing 'fantastic' things today.  The only way I'm getting through this day is by constantly sitting in front of a fan.  Yeah....fan, not A/C unit.  Because I'm just THAT into antiques and the 'old school' lifestyle.  In reality, I'm just cheap and not really bothered by the fact that for a few days out of the year it's unbearably hot.

Perhaps later Rowan and I will find an excuse to go to an air conditioned store.  Like Bulk Barn!  I'm in the process of planning R-man's 1st birthday party, so I want to scope out their shaped baking pan selection.  You can rent them for $2 per day.  Fan-freaking-tabulous if you ask me!

Regardless of how hot it is, Rowan doesn't leave home without his new hat.

I created my own pattern from another hat that I purchased, I think it turned out pretty well.  I found the mini buckle at Fabricland.  So much easier than ties!

I would love to do a tutorial, but I have to tweak the pattern a little bit.  Stay tuned!

Last but not least - I really want to do a giveaway!  Visit A Handmade Tale's Facebook page and 'Like' it if you haven't already.

Oh my god, i must have this for my son. I want to sew,but I cant even thread the bobbin on my machine, and I'm far to rushed anyway. Great job, and I love the print too!
