a sun-hat for Lexi

It all started last night
when I spotted my note

and just below it
the curtain topper I'd bought at a yard sale for 25 cents.

I picked it up
planning to make the girls sun-dresses
but then
I saw the reminder
that I'd put on my shelves
because I could never remember Lexi needed a sun hat
until we were in the pool
and she got all squinty.
I suppose a really good mom
would have hopped out and stitched one up immediately.
But alas,
I am not a really good mom
just a decent one.
I do
after all
try to hop in the pool every day with the kiddos.
I used Charity's bush hat tutorial as a very loose guide.
I used the same tute
last year

I should have used interfacing on the brim
and if I ever make another
I'll be sure to add it.

It's a bit floppy
but it works okay as is

and I still have enough fabric left for a sun-dress
