It's Been Awhile

It seems I have been neglecting a certain part of this blog, 
Can anyone guess?
Maybe...
Patterns??
Well, I know this, and I have been trying to think of something
 I could show you that would be easy enough for me to make a pattern for you!
So here it is, 
the
Simple Summer Tie Hat!
I have seen these in a few boutiques and other 
really "fashionable" places.
But again, 
I don't like to pay for something I can make.
Especially something which will take me 10 minutes to make!
if you have any problems, let me know, so I can email it to you. 
You only need about 1/4 yard, or scraps work just as well. 
Just so you know the pattern does not include 
seam allowance! 
So cut seam allowance! 
How ever much you need!
Cut:
2 semi circles for the brim
1 semi circle of interfacing
1 5"x48" for the tie
Sew the curve of the semi circle and clip
(p.s. I clipped my semi circle lots more than pictured)
If necessary sew the long piece of fabric together,
like I did.
Don't forget 
RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER!
See how I clipped that?
Try not to clip through your stitches!
Turn the semi circle right sides out, 
and iron.
(Just so everyone knows, 
I never ironed anything before starting this blog! 
You guys are turning me into a good seamstress!)
Slip the interfacing in. 
For this next step, 
find the center of your long tie, 
and the center of the semi circle. 
Try and match them up. 
Pin like shown, this is where the semi circle or brim will be placed.
Sew the long tie, but don't sew between the pins.
Turn it right side out, 
and iron again. 
It will make it so much easier if you do iron.
As much as I hate to admit that. 
Slide your semi circle into the opening, 
about 1/2". 
If desired you can pin. 
Top stitch and you are done!
See how easy!?
It looks like some weird bib, 
when it is not being worn, 
but so cute on.
She wasn't happy with me,
when I took this pictures, 
as you can see.
See the cute ties? 
This is the first 1 I made, 
and I thought that the tie was a bit thick. 
But for a bigger child, 
that might be nice.
