The denim are legs from a pair of jeans I'd made into a bag that can fit a laptop in which is on sale at my folksy shop. I had aimed to use the fabric for a hat but hadn't got round to it but with going on hoilday its always best to have 2 hats so I made it for my challenge.
Now this hat is another item from 'making children's clothes' but as I'd already made a vintage one for my daughter I had a good chance of making it, all went well but as its for a boy I found the brim a bit long and looked a bit girly on him so I took a few cms off then continued as the book said.
When it came to topstitching the brim I stitched extra rows instead of the one in the book, it has worked well so I'm happy. Here are some pics.

Now its time to start entertaining the children then back to find more fabric for the next part of my fabric challenge.
