I'm sure everyone has seen that amazing bucket hat from Sew Much Ado - looking at the tutorial it look relatively simple, so I thought I'd whip one up. I thought it'd be cute for Disneyworld. It is cute. But for some reason I didn't recall that my toddler doesn't wear hats. At all. Ugh. The picture above is where he stuck it on to show someone - he looks very proud of it - but then he whipped it off before I could get a non-blurry picture, let alone show off the other side. I'm still bringing it on our trip - you never know....
Here it is from the right angle:
Here's a better model, although I think he has a small head:
Sew Much Ado.
I also made the boys some shirts - very plain - I didn't think my almost-8-year-old would appreciate anything all busied up with Disney. So I just ironed Heat-N-Bond (fusible webbing stuff) to a square of fabric, used the same template as the hat, and cut out a decal, then peeled the back off and ironed it on to a shirt on the pocket. I did not stitch these. So, Disney T-shirt, check. I think they were about $3-$4 each. In park, what, $20 a shirt?
