Enid Slouch Beanie--OT 10 blog tour


I love sewing hats! They are so quick to sew and you can make multiple hats in one or two sewing sessions. Plus they don't take very much fabrics, so you can really use up a good amount of scraps. These hats are a bit different than the hats I sewed a few months ago. This is more of a slouchy hat that you could wear as an accessory if you wished. I made hats for my two oldest girls and myself. We all could fit into the adult small size. I think I could have probably made one size smaller for a tighter fit, but we really like how slouchy they are, so I think the size is fine.

The Enid Slouch Beanie is one of the patterns featured in this issue of One Thimble. Can you believe it? There are 10 issues of One Thimble available for you to browse and sew from! What an amazing accomplishment. This issue is sure to not be a disappointment with amazing patterns from several designers. I love the whimsical patterns that Swoodson Says creates--such fun things to play with! And you can't forget the amazing patterns from Filles A Maman--I tested a few patterns for her back when she was just getting started in the pattern making business and I just love the extra touches she puts in her designs to really make them stand out from the ordinary. The Enid Slouch Beanie is by a new to me designer: Rosie Petal. I am looking forward to many more patterns from her.
Really when I made this pattern, I was like well that's cute. Sure I'll make one. Then I found a few more scraps in my stash and thought, well that would certainly make an adorable hat, so I made another one. So far I have made three of these hats. The wooden buttons we found a garage sale in the summer and they were the perfect compliment to the little tab on the side of the hat.
I had been saving this polka dot fabric for another project, but I just knew that it would be an adorable hat. And I kept it for myself too. I covered a large button using a button covering kit and attached it to the tab on the front. I lined up the large blue dot so that it would look like a button and be a subtle decoration to the hat. I think it turned out pretty well. (I received this pattern for free. I wasn't required to write a positive blog post about it, nor was I required to share about the pattern on social media. I only share with my readers those products and services that I love.)
