Mi Sombrero

AKA Amy Butler Blue Skies Hat.


Holy guacamole ... this baby is big. Don't get me wrong - I love it. I'm more bummed that it took me all summer to finally getting around to making it!

The pattern calls for 2 layers of canvas for the brim if you are not using a decorator weight fabric. I decided to use a medium weight fusible interfacing with one layer of canvas and it worked great (I did not use a decorator weight fabric). I cannot wait to go to the pool and give mi sombrero some sunshine and blue sky ;-)
