Let’s Go Fishing Hat

It has  been raining and gloomy here the past few days (best weather for crafting!) so I decided to make some bucket hats for the boys. I used the pattern from the book Sewing for Boys. As far as I know, this is the ONLY book dedicated just towards boys. Usually other  sewing books (for children) will have a pattern or two in there for boys but most of them cater towards girls (womp! womp!). This was a quick and easy project. Especially since the stitches are suppose to be exposed. And I love the look of exposed stitches. When done intentionally. 😉

I probably could’ve have spent more time  lining up the seams but they’re boys and don’t care. Besides, I have more important projects to work on. Like mine.





For my 3 year old (below), I used the size 6/7 patterns. For my 6 year old (above) I altered the pattern by adding an inch. Not saying the pattern doesn’t run true to size. My boys do have large heads (and lots of curly hair)!
