No, not that one! (That's a giant leaf from Kensington Gardens).
That's not it either. (In the shop at the Tower of London).
There it is!
I bought a todder hat pattern from this shop a few weeks before the tot and I went to London. I thought it would be perfect for the trip, so I dubbed it "The London Hat".
Be sure to add the 1 inch seam allowance to the pattern. It's not mentioned in the pattern itself, but in the email directions that accompany it. I overlooked it, so now dolly has a matching hat :-)
I used a pair of ladies dress pants from Goodwill for the fabric. The lining is flannel. They only cost $1, and I was able to make 3 hats from them. The third hat worked well for a snowman:
(yes, we already had snow in ND!)
The frayed flower is not part of the pattern, but here's a great tutorial that can help you out. I just attached it to the hat with a safety pin.
This has to be my favorite picture of the trip! (Thanks Auntie Heather!)
There's fashion statements everywhere in London!
