With the disarray of my sewing space, it's been awhile since I actually finished an entire project, especially a sewing one! I had the afternoon off on Friday and a sleepy boyfriend who wasn't much company, so I decided to start a project that I've wanted to do for a long time, which is the sun hat from Lotta Jansdotter's book, Simple Sewing: Patterns and How to for 24 Simple Projects . I found some fun fabrics, cut out the pieces and got to sewing.
To be honest, I made a few mistakes in sewing the pieces together, and needed some fixing of the hat once it was all sewn together to fit my head properly, but now that it's done, I love it!
I also had some extra fabric left over (and I'd cut out more circles than I needed for the top of the hat) so I decided to make a simple drawstring project bag out of the leftover fabric. I also love how this turned out, and I'm dying to tote it to knit night with a cute new project in it :)
