Two Hat Sunday

Today was another low key day. It rained a good part of the day, but not hard. We got a nice walk after breakfast this morning and when we got home I dug in and started sewing.

I finished up this hat that I cut and fused last night and it’s definitely one of my favorites so far. And here’s the link to the hat pattern for those of you who don’t know which one I’m using.

I just love that orchid fabric and the blue background makes it all pop. Bender looks good in it too!

I went back to all of my original techniques and this went together really easily. The only thing I’m doing differently is that I’m using clips for most of it rather than pins.

Here’s some eye candy. That fabric! That dog! That pink lining!

After I finished this hat I spent some time outside with the dogs and then did a few things around the house. After dinner I had to run to the post office and made a quick trip to the grocery store.

Then it was back to my sewing room. I had this jade millefiori left over from another hat I cut so dug into my stash and found a quarter yard of the red mosaic circles that was left over from another project. I got it all cut and fused and started sewing. I finished it up around 11:30 pm.

Oh man… how I love that red fabric! You might remember that I just used it for when I made the backing for my scrappy trip quilt.

Here’s some red hat eye candy.

I sure feel like I had a non productive weekend. The rain really put a damper on my plans. I’m hoping to get some activities going a few nights this week.

I received some photos of Frankenbags made by Beckie Bouchard. She’s used some really fun fabric combos. I love the first one with the African prints, and the black one. And that frog is pretty darned cute! Thanks for sending photos!

Here’s to another week!

  1. You can be justifiably proud of your lovely hat. You will have passers-by stopping you in the street asking to buy it!
    You have also started a bag trend with all the beautiful bags that are being made. Well done! :))

  2. I think I need an album of “Bender and His Hat” photos for when I’m having a hard day.
    And I also need to find some of Beckie’s frog fabric.
    Thanks for the morning smile.

  3. You’re hat fabric choices! Love them ❀️ I recently have started following your blog and am in the process of making a front and back for a Frankenbag. I think a hat will be next for me. I need more time to sew, my job keeps cutting into my sew time πŸ™ˆ
