A girl and her hat

The Heidi Grace fabric here all represent my attempt to learn how to sew. I know I already can sew now but one year ago, I purchased the fabrics for a scrapbooking with fabric class. I went from trying to stitch a straight line to zipping my way through sewing a hat that Riley actually wears. This is her fourth one of these. What is great about this hat is it requires very little fabric and I can use up scraps that are blocking the light trying to come in from the window. My mom would say that scraps like this are meant to be thrown away. . . for now, Riley will be getting more hats. Maybe this will be the December holiday craft show item of the year.
