I do prefer wearing this hat rather than a regular bucket-style hat though. The adjustable tabs at the back help to give it better shape and fit more snugly on my head.
If you’ve still got some Christmas presents to cross off the list, perhaps you can dig into your fabric stash and whip up a few hats? They really are a quick and simple project…especially when you are making a few in a production line!
I’m short on words tonight…the kids are finally asleep and I’m itching to escape into the sewing room and finish sewing a gazillion pairs of shorts for kids and cousins Christmas gifts!

I’m leaving for Quilt Market in 1 sleep and have a couple of new patterns ready to share!
First up – let me introduce you to
I’ve had a lot of fun playing with different fabric combinations for the Milkshake Skirt also. This skirt is really cute and be given a more classic look with the use of a plain fabric on the exterior panels (I’ve used a lightweight denim here) or you can go to town using two of your favourite printed fabrics for a little more pizazz! (I’ll share some other versions I’ve sewn of each of the patterns with you next week.)
My talented friend Chelsea captured these gorgeous pictures for me (and was a legend for fitting me in between her busy wedding time schedule!) and the cute model is the daughter of a good friend of mine who I don’t get to see nearly enough – thanks Liv and Nik! Isn’t she the sweetest??
You’ll find more information about each of these patterns, Sun Kissed Hat and the Milkshake Skirt 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 stockists or ask your favourite store to order one in for you.
If you would like to win a copy of both of these patterns, leave a comment on this blog post. Two lucky commenters will win themselves a copy of BOTH patterns!
