Cute Hat

I received the book "Little Stitches for Little Ones" by Amy Butler for Christmas. It has a lot of great projects in it. My daughter found this cute "Butterfly Hat" and wanted me to make one for Zoey. Only problem I have never sewn a hat in my life. Looking through the patterns for the book I found the one for the hat in a variety of baby sizes. Using my handy plastic mat, I placed it over the pattern on the window with the most light shining in (cheap light box) and trace it onto the mat with a permanent marker.

David wanted to keep it for his bulldog!

Several tips:

1. Use a print with no words!
2. Use a tiny print!
3. Measure the babies head!

It is a great pattern and very well written but I made a few mistakes I thought I would share. As for the hat it should fit soon! Thanks for stopping by "In The Boon Docks"! Forever Sewing Something, Lisa


  1. How adorable!You're right - the baby will grow into the hat! Then you'll be so proud of how good it looks!

  2. Zoey looks so cute in her hat..nice job! They grow so very fast, I agree with Linda, she will grow into it and sooner than you think! xo

  3. Hello, my Dear! Awww, so sweet! I've come to you from The "Grow Your Blog" party...it was over before I knew about it, but it was so nice of Vicki to leave the list up!
