I’ve had a couple brain drain projects lately. I wanted to do something quick and fun. So I opened up the electronic pattern file, and scanned for something I hadn’t tried yet. I will totally admit guilt to hoarding free electronic patterns. Between that and buying some pattern bundles I’ve got a number of patterns on file we’ve never tried.
I don’t have quite the same problem in paper patterns. I have a pretty limited stack there- and if I bought the paper pattern I probably have a plan for it. So they are less suited for the impromptu project.
I came across the Go to Patterns Conductor hat pattern, and decided this would do the trick! It was short, only a few pages of instructions and 3 pattern pieces.
I’ve never sewn this style of hat before. I anticipated it being harder. My model was feeling a little under the weather. She was just in the large size head. I did end up putting a little extra tuck in the back.
I put soft interfacing in the brim, but overall the hat has a lot of flexibility, I like that for a little person hat. I find hats kind of intimidating to sew, this was a good experience for me. Have you ever had something you were convinced would be really hard to sew- and it turned to be not so bad after all? And one more picture just for kicks 🙂
