The cutest and great for beginners

I’m new to the sewing world, but I found this to be an easy and fun project! It helped me learn more about sewing while giving me all the tools to succeed! The videos, pictures and instructions were done so well. I can’t wait to try this pattern again, and I look forward to purchasing many more patterns.

Cute bucket hats

It was a lot of fun sewing these for my great-granddaughter. The pattern was very easy to follow. I made all 3 versions of them, but the large petal was my favorite.

Alinda Drury (Rochester, US)
Simple and so cute!

This hat is pretty easy to put together - and with a little hand stitching, can be reversible. What’s not to like? I also sewed the Tulip Dress in coordinating fabrics. Very happy with both patterns.

Bonnie Pascarelli (Staten Island, US)
Adorable and easy!

I am new to sewing - really only started playing around with my machine when I found out I was going to become a grandmother for the first time. I’ve made a couple of different hats but this one was definitely the easiest. And so cute! Will definitely be making more of these!

Easy sew, super cute

Made the smallest size for my newborn, turned out really cute. Altered to have a little tie-up chin strap.
Thanks for the pattern! Much easier than a bucket hat.

fun to make

My grandaughter loved the hat first off, even wore it inside. She lives on a boat so a hat is important in Queensland, Australia.
I have made one for myself, Great fit and shady. This hat is fun to make. Some advice is to make sure you stick to the recommended
seam width to have an accurate fit. i love the petal brim. Regards Wendy
