One can never have too many hats. It’s true, one really cannot. Especially if you are very small, spend a great deal of time outdoors, and are prone to activities that result in hats badly in need of a wash.

Mausi still wears the hat I made her last year, but as I was sitting down to make Cub his first bucket hat, I thought I would make Maus another as well.

I made a couple of changes to the brim of Mausi’s hat from the one I made her last year, although I made the same overall size. I increased the width of the brim a little (but I think that on th next one I will increase the width a little more again), and this time I didn’t add the parallel rows of topstitching that I had done on her first hat and Cub’s hat as well. The outer fabric of Mausi’s hat is an organic cotton from Monaluna. The ‘Mixed Apple‘ print from the Taali collection, and the inside is the ‘Posies’ print form the same collection.

Cub’s hat does not yet fit him properly, which isn’t really a problem I suppose, as he is not yet sitting on his own, and he generally wear Mausi’s old bonnet when he is in the sling. His hat is made from two fabrics from the ‘Children at Play’ collection from Sarah Jane for Michael Miller fabrics.

I think one with strings will be next…and maybe a linen one for mama?

*Mausi was NOT in the mood to model her hat for pictures, and Cub just isn’t quite ready for it yet!*
