Hat Making Workshop

Last week, a small group of us attended a hat making workshop, it was a rewarding and fruitful day. Each of us completed a lined / reversible hat, and came home with many time saving sewing hints and general sewing advice.

The lining made and at the ready
the last of my fabric - some of which was used in Maybelle's Quilt

A large light box - how easy to trace the pattern and make adjustments with this beauty!

Concentrate well!

Shaping as we go

Fast progress here!

Gorgeous colours

Wonderful boy's sunhat

Needs that final iron!

Overall, a fun and productive day, Marg went home and made another hat that evening for her other son, lucky boys. Our children were happy with our sewing, if they continue to behave -- they may all be rewarded with matchy matchy hats for the coming summer!
