Here’s the gorgeous Miss Evie in her brand new sunhat, courtesy of some lovely fabric from Lady Sew ‘n’ Sew and a cute little Butterick pattern. Evie has two parents who are just mad about their allotment, so this is the perfect thing for afternoons spent wandering amongst the cabbage patch, or feeding the chickens. The cute pocket on the side is ideal for stashing sweeties or treasure (hmmm, secret pockets in clothes for sweets, why don’t all patterns have them?!)
This was amazingly fiddly for just a hat and had oodles of hand stitching again. Love the fabric though with little birds and leaves and flowers and a beautiful buttercup yellow lining. Next up is the boy’s version modelled by curly-haired rebel Aiden … perfect for fishing!
