Sunhat for Maddie

I learned something today.052009 003

When cutting bias strips, know where your coffee is.  I managed to get not one, but two strips in my coffee. 

I had a light yellow piece of Laurel Burch fabric to cut out  which will be good for a sunhat.  Most of the LB fabric I have is too dark or Christmas.  I couldn’t find my bias tape so I make some more.  I could buy some,but I really like making my own.  It gives my things a personal touch.  I had to get some more interfacing.  All I have is very light weight and I like a light medium weight for these hats.  Luckily, the local Walmart still sells fabric so I didn’t have to go very far.  I caught the worker just as she was about to go on break.  She wasn’t too happy.  But there were a couple of times when I had to go through half the store looking for someone.  So, anyway, I bought ten yards.  You can never have enough.

I started this post two days ago, but the Internet went down.  At least word-press automatically saves your draft every few minutes.  Thanks, guys.  With all the absolutely beautiful weather we have been having, it’s really hard to blog.  I am only inside now because I am talking to a girlfriend on the phone.
