Yesterday I finished a laminated cotton Rain Cape for a friend's little daughter (sorry, forgot to take a pic before I mailed it), and today I made this Bucket Hat for my grandson. And no - that's not him under the hat - that's my selvedge jar :) He's already outgrown all the other hats I've made for him and he lives in Florida so a sunhat that fits is a must! Both were made with patterns from this book by Oliver + S. It's full of lots of great sewing patterns for children's items and I highly recommend it.
Warning! If you're the mother of my grand-daughter and you want to be surprised at her 1st birthday party then don't read any further - stop now!
OK - now that she's gone, I'll show you my latest project. I found this pattern from The Purl Bee for the cutest little penguins. They'll be just perfect for the aforementioned birthday party! So tonight I cut out all the pieces and tomorrow I'll start sewing them together. I'm not one to usually make stuffed animals, but I just couldn't resist these ones. They're so stinkin' cute!!!
