sew september update 2!

hello lovelies!
 another sew september update for you! i finished my new bike hat, and i am so happy with it! it is nice to now have 2 hats to choose from now. i had bought this floral fabric to make skirts with but that came and went so when i found this mustard colored fabric at the thrift store i thought it would look soooo cute with my floral fabric. instead of having an all floral or all yellow hat i  decided to use both and underside of the flap is yellow. i just LOVE my new hat and i am gonna wear it tonight on our group ride.
i really like the tape i used in the inside,  makes it look very fancy and professional :D i finished up my hat on friday and since then have been working on a matching bike bag. i am reworking a clutch pattern to fit my needs and it is proving to be a bit harder then i thought but it is just a prototype so i when i am done i will have learned lots from this experience. i am excited to be done with it so i can test it out and show you!

  12. You are so ridiculously talented. I can't even imagine trying to make a hat. Mine would turn out very very scary looking. Great job!
