The Reversible Bucket Hat

Do you ever have something that you've been meaning to share with someone, but for some reason just keep forgetting?  That's what happened with me and this cute Bucket Hat!

I made this hat at the beginning of summer (in early June, so I suppose it was spring technically).  Catherine needed a pool hat -- something that could get wet and still keep her head shaded.  She has *ahem* a large head and had outgrown the hat she wore last year.  These pictures were taken just this week (in early December), so this is how the hat looks after a summer of sun and chlorine.

The pattern is The Reversible Bucket Hat by Oliver + S.  (It's a free download!) I cut all of the pieces then constructed it per Jessica's instructions over at A Little Gray. Her method is pretty easy and eliminates the need for hand-sewing.  I will be the first to admit, I didn't do a perfect job: the seams don't line up perfectly and my top stitching is a bit wonky.  I still really like the finished product though!

This is a great project for those super cute fat quarters that you have laying around.  (Because we all have some of those, right?)  I also love that this hat will be something that I can make "boyish" for when My Little Man arrives.

This hat is fully reversible, and personally I like both the fabrics that I chose for Catherine's hat, however, she is quite adamant that the pink side is the "right" side and thought I was super silly for taking pictures of her with her hat "inside out"!

I love sharing my crafty projects around the blog world!
