So I made the Oliver + S reversible bucket hat. I used two thrifted sheets that I've used in other projects before. The fabric isn't exactly what I love for this project, but using it saved me both money and a trip to the fabric store. I think it still turned out pretty well.
I'm thinking of adding an elastic chin strap. To keep the hat reversible, I would put in two buttonholes on the sides of the hat, then sew some buttons to the ends of a piece of elastic. I think it would work. He keeps the hat on pretty well for now, but I could see him flinging it along the way somewhere. We tend to lose hats on vacation.
I'm excited to go on vacation, but it's going to be very, very hot, and we will be two nights without air conditioning. Any tips for keeping babies cool in the heat?
