Bucket (List) Hats

I recently wrote an article for AP about Liesl Gibson and her book, “Oliver + S: Little Things to Sew,” featuring the bucket hat I’ve made a few times this summer. Liesl was extremely nice and very interesting to talk to. Here’s a link to my story, which includes a link to download the hat pattern and instructions:
AP article: Oliver + S Bucket Hats

And here are some photos of the hats I made to go with the story. That’s my adorable niece modeling for me. The blue hat reverses to the blue spaceship print, the green reverses to the orange robot print and the yellow reverses to the red and white hippo print. For the yellow/red version, I pressed a bit of the yellow lining to the outside edge of the brim and it sort of looks like piping. Of course, that means the yellow lining is a bit skewed, but that might be something worth trying again, maybe making the lining brim piece a bit bigger so it could wrap around to the front.

  • All your hats look fantastic! I just made my first couple this month and loved the pattern. The have been a huge hit in our “Little Things to Sew-Along” I’m hosting.

  • Those are some cute hats! And your niece is adorable =)

  • I saw the story on my morning commute. It appeared in our Toronto edition of Metro. I was so excited to see the paper carry a sewing story!!! Made my day.

  • Those hats are really cute… but your niece is absolutely adorable with her big brown eyes! She reminds me so much of my niece (now 20) when she was around that age, especially her smile, that I can’t help but grin looking at that pic. Now I’m feeling all nostalgic for those “good ol'” days. 😀 I’m looking forward to browsing around the rest of your blog.
