The second hat sewn over the Mother's Day weekend was a little bit more of a success.
The sewing isn't actually as well done as the first one, and the fabrics used are identical.
I just feel marginally better wearing this one. It seems to suit my face and head shape a bit better.
A bit anyway! I still feel like a dork wearing it, but I feel like that in ALL hats.
Trouble is I truly NEED a hat with a brim to keep the sun out of my eyes on bright days and the rain off my glasses on the miserable days.
This hat is a slightly modified version of "The Squashy Cap" from "Happy Hats and Cool Caps" by Anne-Mette Hermansen and Tina Elnef. I shortened the height of the crown segments so the crown is not so large in diameter.
