Hi there! I am Jess Abbott the Sewing Rabbit, author or the Me Sew Crazy blog. I am thrilled to be a part of UCreate’s Summer Fat Quarter Series, actually thrilled would be an understatement. I am honored, excited, overjoyed, and pretty much pinching myself. I remember when UCreate first featured one of my projects a while back, and how overwhelmed I was by the attention I received from it. The powerhouse that these 2 incredible women are, and all that they do for the blogging community, is incredible. And I am so thankful to them for helping me, and so many others, along the way.
I am a firm believer that anyone can sew, if they would only try. So for UCreate’s Summer Fat Quarter Series, I wanted to come up with something that would truly be a beginner sewing project.
This kid’s visor is perfect for protecting your little one’s noggin from the Summer Sun. All the while being a sewing project that will take you less than an hour to sew. And it only uses 1 Fat Quarter of fabric.
Let me show you just how easy it is to make.
- 1 Fat Quarter of Fabric
- Phoomph for Fabric – Stiff
- Basic Sewing Essentials
- Visor pattern found here
And that’s it!
A perfect play time visor that you can whip up to showcase your favorite fabrics, embroider to make your own, or just to craft with your kids.
To secure around your kid’s head – simply tie around the back.
*Note – not meant for wearing in the rain. An option for making this waterproof would be to spray with a ‘waterproof spray’ – but this is not recommended as I wouldn’t trust it against your child’s most precious face!!!
Thanks so much for having me here at UCreate, and if you have a moment I would be honored if you would consider popping by the Sewing Rabbit’s site to see all that the team and I are up to!
Until next time…Happy Sewing!
