Hat Day

Inside, sewing on a beautiful day like today? Yes, ma'am! I spent the morning doing spring clean up in the yard (much more to go, but it was a start). After lunch, I banished the kids and voila - a new hat for my mom. She chose the fabric during her visit with us last week. Sarah picked fabric, too, so that'll be next, I suppose (unless she keeps this one - see below). Having some sewing time felt indulgent - moments for myself have been few and far between during spring break. The exterior fabric is from Heather Bailey's Freshcut. The lining is from Amy Butler's brand new Midwest Modern.

It's beautiful! Did you have problems with the pattern? I seem to remember reading a few places that the pattern had to be adjusted somewhat? I love the lining and outside fabrics together -- so spring-y! Do you think we've finally turned the corner on our Indiana winter???

no adjustments to the Lansdotter pattern - lining up the top (circle) with the crown was tricky, though - mostly it was a quick sew :)
