One of the pleasures of working at nido is sewing items for the shop that I normally wouldn’t for myself. Children’s items are probably the top of the list since I have no kids of my own. What fun though! They are usually more whimsical in fabric and design, always serve a utilitarian purpose, and whip up quick. The Reversible Bucket Hat from the newly released book ‘Oliver & S: Little Things To Sew’ was no exception. So cute, and what better excuse is there to sew than keeping your little one out of the harmful summer sun? It uses about half a yard in total so it would be the perfect way to use up some of those fun scraps in your stash, or experiment with outrageous and colorful fabrics you have been eying at the store.
The pattern is very straightforward and would be easy for even a beginner-intermediate beginner to conquer. I especially had fun sewing the circles around the brim since it isn’t often that I get to do so. It was also fun and rewarding to watch something come together so quickly. You’ll find that you want to make one to match every outfit for your little tyke, or enough to send to all your friends and family with little ones.
