Sun Hat

"Mum, can you make me a sun hat?"

Orla needs a sun hat as it is very hot here this week, she doesn't have one (they all got binned in the move) and she is going on an all-day adventure tomorrow with no shade...

She produced a pattern from her Sewing School book which although nice was completely impractical being made of fleece and having no rim at all. Designed to be a 'keep your head warm' hat and not a 'shade your face' hat.

So using a bit of google-fu I found a very simple pattern.

Two fabrics chosen, cut out and super-quickly sewn together gave me this hat:

Not the neatest piece of work. But funtional and quick.
