It is raining outside and the sky is a bit dark, but there are sunshine in my house because I have two wonderful news today!
By now, you must have been following the Free Pattern Month over at Grosgrain blog. If you haven’t, you should check it out! It is a whole month devoted for wonderful free pattern and tutorial by several guests from around the blogosphere, one pattern each day! Kathleen is always so full of ideas!
I’m so honored to be one of her guest too! Please check out my guest post today where I’m sharing a pattern and tutorial for this scallop hat. This wide-brimmed hat is perfect for summertime. And if you want, you can smooth off the scalloped edge on the pattern to create an ordinary wide-brimmed hat.
The fabric for my hat is orange thick twill fabric that I found in a local fabric store for a very cheap price, and I still have lots of leftover. I use quilting cotton for lining. Sewing this hat is not difficult, the most time-consuming part is the scallops because they need to be done carefully. But careful work will give the best result!
Guest tutorial post is HERE.

The second news is: I just found out that my broken striped top has won Judges’ Choice for Best Top in Spring Top Sewalong 2011! I’m so happy! Thank you so much to Rae and the judges! \(^_^)/
