Reversible Bucket

The Reversible Bucket Hat made from the Oliver + S book, Little Things to Sew. For both fabrics I used quilters cotton and the interfacing is Stacy woven interfacing. I made a size L because both Emily's and Ava's head measure 20.25" and the Large is supposed to fit approximately a 21" head. I liked the way the pattern went to together and thought it was easy but I'm basing that on my own skill level and can't really judge what's good for beginner's and what's not. How do they determine that anyway? I have tried other hat patterns a loooooong time ago and they never ever came out like they were supposed to. But those were patterns from the major companies (McCall's, etc) they were always homemade looking and usually way to large. I knew this one from Oliver + S would come out. I did! Because it's O+S and their patterns are truly the best. I'm just saying...

Thanks everyone for the get-well wishes. I did not feel better till yesterday evening and Ava seems fine but has had 4 major diaper blow-outs (up the back of the shirt)  2 were while we were out and then once in the bathtub. That was disgusting. And trying to get her to say whether it came from her butt or mouth was like talking to a....3 year old!!! I finally had to smell her mouth and then knew it came from the other end.

Oh My God! That last little blurb about Emily and her blow outs made me laugh out loud! I guess I need to be on here more often - I didn't know you were sick!

I LOVE the hate - I should get that book and make it for my child with the big head! Annabel has a normal size head!

that hat is so fun! I am looking for a hat for micah mom said something about making one I think this one might be it (just in boy fabric!) Your kids have the coolest stuff I think I've told you that before but just in case...
and Ava is too cute seriously want to squeeze her.
I am going to pretend stuff like the bath tub thing doesn't happen for a little while longer... that will so be a thing that matt has to take care of!
