I went to High Fashion Fabrics with my new friend, Sarah from Sew Crafty, last week to lay our hands on some lovely fabric.
I picked up two Amy Butler fabrics to make my Amy Butler Blue Sky honeymoon hat.
I got the top fabric for the outer layer and the bottom one for the inner layer. With those two fabrics, the pattern, the canvas to give the hat some sturdiness, and coordinating thread, I spent about $50. In this case, going handmade is not going to save me money. Oh well. It will be fun to make it (assuming it turns out okay!), and the hat will forever have special meaning.
I'm not letting myself start the project until I clean my craft/office. It's a disaster zone.
