The End of my Seven-Week Challenge!

And now, the 8th and last project of my Seven-Week Challenge (drum roll)...

a baker's hat for aspiring-baker Céline!

Readers, you were probably curious about the "secret project" I wrote about in a recent post. I'm sorry I made you wait so long! I couldn't talk about it because I didn't want to spill the beans for Céline's birthday gift.

Céline seemed soooo surprised and touched by my present, which made me really happy.

You can see that I've used some left-over fabric from my yellow dress (and added brown bias), some left-over fabric from my green retro top, and a new fabric I bought for the occasion. The three hats are all so cute and I feel like the pictures don't really do them justice... Maybe Céline will indulge All Style and All Substance with more pictures? Maybe she will also bake us some croissants?

I made the pattern myself and I'm pretty happy with the result. In fact, I was thinking of posting the tutorial online for you people to make your own (if there is an interest).

Also, some of you might be wondering what has happened to the flowery fabric that was supposed to be Project #8. Well, I'm making something with this fabric and you will see it as soon as I find a sewing machine here, in Hull, UK (by the way, can anyone help me with this?). I just didn't have enough time to do the baker's hats AND project #8. So the baker's hats became project #8. :-)

Would anyone rent me a machine for 10 months?

  1. Thank you Adrienne for the lovely baking bonnets! I'm wearing one as I write this, and can say they are good for more than just baking - they have kept my ears toasty and warm this afternoon as I lounge around the house. And yes, it will be my pleasure to send you more pictures (including croissants!) Happy sewing in the UK!
