It's time for this week's update on the 52 Week Sewing Challenge, I did finish week three too, but it's a gift for a friend so I will need to blog about that one later when she's actually received her present. This weeks challenge is "make something for a boy", which is kind of perfect, as it coincides with a visit from my nephew Lukah.
Sew La Tea Do which is probably one of my oldest sewing books, I've made a lot of patterns from this book so I thought a hat would be a safe bet.
I have to admit in the past I may have viewed this as a loss, but I'm trying to take a more positive approach to sewing. In this case, it was right fabric and a good idea....but the pattern wasn't right. I learnt something from making this hat and now I can move onto my next project.
I don't have a sun hat myself and I'm planning on making one for summer festivals and hiking, although I will definitely be choosing another pattern (I'm pretty sure I have a kwik sew one somewhere).
Next weeks theme is "sew something from a newly purchased pattern" and I've got something in the works for this already - fingers crossed it works out ok!
