Week 24 – Simplicity 2850 Hat (without beak)
Cop out or Catch Up… I hear the cynical voices…
I’d like to say Catch Up – in my defense my machine was absent for a while, so my sewn items fell behind. But I am determined!! This week I have a remnant from Clegs that I picked up for $2.50 – pure wool, cashmere blend. I decided with such a small amount of material it would be perfect for a little hat. I used the Simplicity 2850 pattern, and just made a couple of alterations. I felt the wool was thick enough that it didn’t need any interfacing, and I removed the ‘beak’ from the pattern – makes it look a little more french.
I had some lovely paisley fat-flat for the inside, which being pure cotton helps the inside band not to itch my head as scratchy wool can sometimes do. Lovely, simple pattern, and helps my brown-blue wardrobe conundrum.
