The Jack and Jill Hat
I've been wanting to make this hat ever since Suzanne started offering the pattern in her store and Amanda made a few adorable examples. My first attempt was with a boy's hat, and while it looks good on the outside, the inside lining is nothing that I am proud of. I can't wait to try again with a little girl's hat. I get a little addled by patterns. I learn much better by watching someone else. That is why I love blog patterns and tutorials. Clear, colored pictures make it easier for me to learn.
He wore it all day yesterday, which made his mama quite happy. And then we took off to Pasadena for an extended-family Fourth of July celebration.
Here is the Sienna T-Shirt Dress I got to make for a friend's daughter, turning ONE today. Happy birthday, Maddy! The shirt is one of Maddy's mommy's old T's, covertly given to me by Maddy's grandmother.
