How adorable is she??  I made this one piece without any bindings and a simple pull over neckband.  So, if you are one of those that won’t do binding then this is for you 🙂

The hat patterns are long overdue. They are such staples that I adore and I’m so happy to use them for Eleanor now!

    So cute! Everyone seems to hate bindings?? I love binding, I think it’s fun, and it looks so nice, especially with contrasting fabric.
