And because I’m still crazy about this beautiful lightweight denim, I had to sew up a denim version too…with ruffles, but looking a little less fussy in a plain fabric. (Oh, Nancy Noo – you are super cuuuuute!)

I’m in baby-sewing mode lately! Although I have a couple of other hat sewing patterns, I felt that I needed one that was geared explicitly toward babies. Baby hats need to provide great shade, fit snugly on the head and (most importantly) be impossible to pull off! And try as she might, my adorable niece Nancy couldn’t get the thing off her head!
With the addition of some fun and easy to sew baby bloomers to cover the nappy, Summer Carnival makes a great baby shower or first birthday gift. And if you don’t have little girls to sew for, never fear! This set looks just as gorgeous sewn up for a boy without any frills or ruffles, I’ll share that variation with you later in the week to avoid photo overload here!
Summer Carnival fits sizes newborn to 24 months, all sizes are in the one pattern. You’ll find more information about Summer Carnival on the Make It Perfect website. If you are looking for a place to purchase a copy of the pattern for yourself, take a look at our stockist or ask your favourite store to order one in for you.
We can’t have a new pattern without a giveaway…to win a copy of Summer Carnival, simply leave a comment on this blog post!
