KCW October 2014: Days 4-5 {Floral hat & grey and yellow sweater}


Today was a rather a dreary old day (after lots of days of sunshine), so it felt rather odd to be sewing a sun hat and a sweatshirt with sunny pops of yellow!

I’ve just realised while writing this, but this blog post is an unintentional advertisement for the Miss Matatabi Fabric Store. Both the Grey and yellow (REVERSIBLE) sweater knit (the same as what I used on Isabelle's top earlier this week – just in a different colourway) and the floral fabric used in the lining of the brim (see photo below) are from a remnant pack I recently bought from Miss Matatabi … Annnd the outer of the hat is some lovely Nani Iro fabric I previously bought from there.

The pattern I used for the sweatshirt is (once again) the Streetsmart Sweatshirt Collection by Little Kiwis Closet, in size 2 and the hat is a vintage pattern I snagged from an op shop a while back.


Too see the rest of my KCW makings this time around see here.

Your sun hat is so sweet! After a day in the garden yesterday in full sun, my mind had wandered to making a wee sun hat or two. You have inspired me to get out my sketch pad and get started! And oh my... Could your model get any sweeter? Xx

That is such a lovely and beautifully made sunhat! and the sweater looks toasty too! Love that they're reversible!
