Something for the Dutch Rainy Days

I follow many bloggers from Australia who are celebrating spring and preparing for summer. All these fabulous spring/summer outfits brighten these gray, rainy days we are ‘welcoming’ in The Netherlands.

Almost a year ago I have made few hats for my mother.  At the same time I have bought a fabric to make a hat for myself. All pattern pieces were already cut and they were waiting for me to connect them. The pattern I am using is an adjustment version of the Vogue pattern V8405 – view B (at least I think so as it was long ago).

Making a hat – warming up

From time to time it is fine to have an easy project. I was planning to make a hat for my mother so to warm up after being sick I decided to follow-up on it.

I have made a muslin while visiting my mother in September by copying a hat she has and likes.
