Today was the first time I sat down to sew at my house since the boy was born. I have sewn other places with dozens of energetic babysitters to entertain him, but never on my own. Early in the day I sewed some nappy stuff which got used and missed the photo shoot. Later in the day I made this sun hat.
I used some of the fabric I bought at the Patchwork Apple a few weeks ago. It was easy to make (even with a baby in a sling on my lap) and looks cute. The best thing is it fits! I have been trying to buy a hat for few weeks now and it just wasn't happening. After a couple of minutes on the net I found this great pattern and about 30 minutes making time and it was done. Sewing makes me feel clever!
Another thrilling thing to tell you is I started knitting that jacket! I found some yarn suitable in my stash, so I didn't have to wait for a trip to the shops. Its not too bad so far. Its a bit stretched looking at the sides of the cables which I have no clue on how to fix. If I can work it out I might have to frogg it and start again.
