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!
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
