My Friday Night Sew In was more of a late afternoon, early evening sew in, as I knew I was coming down with some nasty cold/flu thingy. But with two kids to look after, dinner to prepare and cook, bath, story and getting them ready for bed, I knew I just had to soldier on. So in between I jumped on the sewing machine and finished off a hat for my son that I had cut out earlier in the day. My son & I had picked out the fabric for his 'very cool' hat earlier in the week as it had to be something he really loved (so he would wear it!). This is the 'lazy day hat' by 'Make it Perfect' and is a great design and I was really happy with the results. The pattern is from toddlers right through to adult sizes so you can reuse it over and over (which is great for growing children!). I made the medium size for my son and it is a perfect fit. He loved it as you can probably tell from the photo! It is reversable so he can choose to wear it as a blue or an orange hat!
Ric Rac is running a raffle to win a custom made softie toy to raise money for the Japan Quake Appeal. There is also a link there to a master list of auctions and raffles that are raising money for this great cause. Money from these auctions and raffles goes to the Red Cross and Global Giving Funds.
Happy sewing eveyone,
