Kelvin Grove, Au...
I once bought a cute hat from Table 8. I loved it so much that I decided to trace a pattern from it and try to make my own hat that reflected my personality more. It was quite easy to make and half of it was hand stitched as I started it on a holiday. The main issue was making sure it fit snuggly (personally it could have been snugger but it still fits fine) and making up the piping. I had no idea how to do it so it took a little fiddling with the machine needle position. Putting the piping in was also a little tricky – a lot of basting required. I am very happy with the outcome and I get lots of compliments. Hope you llike it.
I have used a mix of fabrics – some cute japanese fabric I bought from “a little goodness” which has sadly closed, vintage fabric and some gingham. I also made my own piping.
