I went to a great yard sale a few weeks ago and after chatting with the owner for a bit about making clothing, she brought out her gigantic secret stash of buttons, adorable vintage girl’s dresses, and a few yards of fabric. I paid $20 for a piece of furniture, and she “threw in” some goodies. One of them being this awesome fabric by Painting Red Rhinos:
How cute are those little surfboards? The first thing that came to mind was to make my boy a bucket hat:
The pattern came from the book, Oliver + S Little Things to Sew.
There are so many great little things to make from this book- I highly recommend it!
The hat is reversible- I lined this one with yellow twill.
I love the glimpse of color that pokes out…
I had enough fabric to make a pair of comfy pants… I drafted a pattern from an old pair of pants and they seem to fit him perfectly.
Future romance-novel cover model?? 😉
Where’s the beach?
