Cap

While reading instructions for making skirts for the girls a few weeks ago, I noticed a great cap pattern on the other side of the page (Ottobre 4/2006). I thought it would make a great present for my nephew's birthday this week. I used corduroy for the outside and fully lined the inside with quilting cotton.


I cut the smallest size which was for a 50cm head, but it fit the twins heads which are about 52.5cm. So I sewed a strip of elastic into the lining before I attached the lining to the cap and am crossing fingers it will fit. Although we all know that children don't shrink, they grow and it will fit him eventually.
