5 In The Best Of Emkie

TGIFF – The hat is finished and is being enjoyed…

Hi everyone

I finished the hat.

T loves it, and it has been worn a heap in our recent good weather.

I used the Oliver+s pattern from Oliver + s: Little things to sew*
(You can also download this pattern free…just follow the links provided by this Pin – told you I had an addiction :P)

I made the medium, as I measured T’s head to be 21″ and it fits great, but I think he will only get one summer out of it, which means I’ll have to make another next year…oh well, I’ll probably end up making 2 next year as M will probably want a matching one ;D

The inside of the hat 🙂

Exterior – Batman (quilting cotton) a fat 1/4 I purchased form Gail B Patchwork and Quilting in July at the craft and quilting fair in Melbourne.
Interior – Robot fabric (poplin), I purchased at spotlight years ago…and I still have more to make many…many…many other robot things for my robot obsessed boy 😛

I’m going to put it out there now…I suspect T’s next birthday party will be batman/super hero themed, I dont’s see him getting sick of them any time soon…

oh, and I’m joining in here today:

    A Batman hat! Awesome. 🙂 Love those monsters in there. Is it even reversible? I made hats for the girls when they were little. They were challenging, but very fun to do up.

    Hi LynCC 🙂
    Yep it is supposed to be reversible…but I stuffed up the robot layer so it doesn't look as good as it should, so it isn't reversible anymore ;P
