What about a hat you say? They are fun, keep out rain, keep sun off face, look fancy or stylish or just make a statement. I have made a hat. Yup, it's true. Our Sheep to Shawl team needed some head gear. I dug through my patterns and found this one.
Folkwear . A lovely chapeau, no?
Then I found this one, an oldie but a goody.
The team members like View H above which is quite similar to the Folkwear pattern. There were 3 size smalls and 5 size mediums. I made a sample. A kindly old woman agreed to model it for me.
This past Thursday Pam and I got together and sewed up a hat for every member of the team. Here is one. Keep in mind the button is really a lime green. Pam and I both have that photo problem from time to time.
I hope to get a photo of the team in action wearing their hats. They'll be doing a demonstration at the El Dorado County Fair Father's Day weekend. The following weekend they will be in Eugene, OR for the Black Sheep Gathering. There they will win the competition for the 2nd time.
PS The Folkwear pattern is still available.
Now it's time for "groovin' on a Sunday afternoon" Skip ad. Listen.
