Amy Butler Blue Sky Hats

It's been a very mild winter, but I'm still so excited about spring!  I love when the bulbs start to pop up, I adore leaving the house in the morning without a coat and it brightens my day to hear the birds singing outside my window... and I LOVE having an extra hour of daylight after work.  In honor of spring's arrival, I decided that it was time to make Amy Butler's Blue Sky Hat.  There's nothing better than sitting on the beach, with a good book and a great hat!

This pattern was a fun afternoon project.  The directions were very clear and easy to follow.  I used home decor fabric from Hancock Fabrics and one layer of cotton duck sandwiched between the home decor fabric.  The hat is simply triangles sewn together to make a skull cap and a wide brim.  Couldn't be simpler!

Ready for the beach any day now!  I'm pretty certain that every one of my female family members and friends will be receiving one of these hats as a present for some upcoming holiday... Just a warning!


  1. Fantastic! You'll have so much fun remaking this in various fabrics. A very stylish summer ahead.

  2. Very cute. A friend and I made this hat together and were shocked when we saw the pattern. Two pieces! We want in on that business!
