I know I already posted about these, but seriously, buy this book if you haven’t! Oliver + S Little Things to Sew: 20 Classic Accessories and Toys for Children
This post is about another “oops” project. If you’re like me, you’ll have plenty of those. And, it’s very rewarding when you can figure out a fix that actually makes your craft look even better!
I made this hat recently for a niece, using the same pattern as before for the bucket hat. I was focusing so hard on making sure that the final step, where you attach the second cap to the rest of the hat, didn’t have any weird bubbling or other issues.
Unfortunately, I didn’t pay attention to the reverse part of the fabric, and when it was all sewn up, I realized there was a biiiiig bubble there.
(And forgot to take a picture)
But, I’m lazy. So, instead of ripping the seams and starting over…
… I slapped a heart on top of it.
And yay! Cute!
I modeled it on a doll since it hasn’t yet gone in the mail to our niece.
(Do you remember these dolls? They were called My Child and came in a huge variety of hair types, colors, eye colors, etc.)
