Fun in the Sun

Last week, I took my girls on an impromptu trip to Cleveland to visit friends. While there, we spent a day on Lake Erie. I grew up boating, tubing, skiing, and swimming in that lake. Being back in the cool, crisp water was a little like a homecoming for me. Quite rejuvenating.

Before leaving, I whipped up a few sun hats for the girls (and also a boy version for the son of the friends we stayed with). My plan was to get a pic of all of them in their hats, but the babies did not cooperate. Olivia will have to carry this one for the team! :)

The pattern is by Oliver + S and is a free download. The clever design makes a reversible hat. I used Moda Bella Solid in Bubble Gum and Ivory. Once I made one, the others came together quickly. I'm a novice garment sewer, so a more experienced seamstress would probably have no trouble at all.

Hope you are getting out and having some fun in the sun this summer too!
