Hats off to Vogue Pattern of the Week


Each week, BMV features a pattern of the week.  Subscribers can purchase the pattern of the week at a hugely discounted price.  This week's feature pattern is Vogue 8681 - Patricia Underwood patchwork hats.   I like hats, but never tried to sew one.   So, this looks like a perfect opportunity.  What I like about this hat pattern is that you could use one solid colour for a simple hat or you could add some "funkiness" and make it with a mix of colours and/or textures.   You could go with new fabric, remnants or you could refashion some old clothing into a hat.  Perhaps you have a small amount of some great vintage fabric that needs a project; this could be your pattern.   I placed my order today, I can hardly wait until it arrives.

  1. Thanks for pointing this one out, I probably would have overlooked it. I like hats too, though I don't wear them often (only in the winter, really). Hope you make one of these up!

  2. I'd love to see one of these made up. I don't wear hats at all, but will enjoy seeing yours. If I lived in a colder climate I'm sure I would follow your lead, although this could be cute in linen too. Hmmmm.....

  4. Oh, this looks fun! A great way to use up scraps - especially the last one with the different triangles. Will be fun to see what you make!
