With the first rays of the sun, we are all planning vacations, whether travelling somewhere to the beach, going to a national park or spending time on a boat. Although it may seem like you don`t need anything, other than getting to the beaches, at first, you still need some little things to have a perfect time. Aside from a swimsuit, towels, glasses, sunscreen and flip flops and maybe some beach toys for your kids, what else do you need to go to the beach? If a hat is not on your list, you should definitely put it on there because it is one of the best and most effective sun protection aids during the summer months, not only on the beach but also in general. This type of protection is even more important when it comes to babies and toddlers.
The Elianna Beach Hat sewing pattern for babies, toddlers and children is a stylish beach hat with a double brim and frills. In addition to protecting the head from overheating and sunbathing, the hat protects the eyes and skin of the face and neck, and the wavy brim protects the shoulders of your little girl too. It also protects the hair from bleaching, drying and cracking.
It’s a confident beginner level sewing pattern where you can make this lovely lined hat for enjoying on a sunny day at the beach or playing outdoors. The pattern is in a pdf format and includes three style options:
Wavy Brim (can be reversible)
Wavy Brim with Ruffle
The Elianna Beach Hat sewing pattern comes in four sizes to fit babies, toddlers and small children (approximately ages 3 months to 5 years).
The 38-page pdf includes detailed step-by-step instructions with full-size computer drafted pattern pieces and photos for complete hat construction in the three styles. When it comes to fabrics, it is best to choose natural and lightweight fabrics in light colors because light colors do not absorb the sunrays.
This hat is a great choice for the beach, but it will also look just as good on a city walk, particularly if it’s paired with dresses. The best thing is you can make as many of these hats as you wish and combine the colors and patterns with your baby`s clothes.
