Newsie Cap

I saw this pattern for the Newsie Cap from Peek-a-Boo Patterns and thought it was so cute. While my sister was pregnant she said she was going to have so many hats for her baby boy so I figured I would make him one.

Well in the end I technically made two, I was tired and for some reason thought I had to add the seam allowance to the pattern so I ended up with an adult size newsie cap! Luckily I had enough fabric leftover to make a second one that actually fit him.

Oh and this was one of those times where I left it until the last minute - this photo has no button as I sewed that on in the car.

They both turned out cute, but it was a little bit fiddly putting it all together. I think if you were really careful sewing the outer hat and lining together you could make it reversible.

Reversible Vest

Awhile back (I think it was for Christmas 2014) I made a cute little reversible vest for my baby nephew. I found a tutorial online with a free pattern (size 18 months) which was lined. I figured since a fair bit of it was lined that I might as well make it reversible which led to me finding this tutorial for a reversible vest (size 12 months).

My combination of these two great tutorials and patterns looked cute on my nephew, and it was nice that I could sew something special for him.

Sorry about the photos, I really need to learn to finish gifts early so I have time to take the photos, along with spare time to retake them when they don't turn out that great.

Stay tuned, my next post will be for the Newsie Cap from Peek-a-Boo Patterns I made for his birthday to match this vest!
