Happy Canada Day!

Vintage Barkcloth Sun Hat

Sun Hat season is back. Last year I made these hats for the trunk show and they were very popular. I'd forgotten about them and a few friends were asking so, rush down to the Chocolate Claim, I'm only making these 4 this year, 2 from Edna's vintage barkcloth curtains. They're reversible, large brims, perfect for sitting and reading, not so great for walking around if you don't want to bump into anything! Actually, the brim folds up in many different ways to aid in seeing where you're going. Very fashionable style nonetheless. They are "modified" Lotta Jansdotter Hats from her book Simple Sewing.
