sweet f.o. 2 – the hat

12 November 2007

hat

:: the hat, as modelled by a passing standard lamp

Pattern from Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing.  Lining fabric from Prints Charming.  It’s a bit tight for my boof-head but it’ll keep the sun off my nose.  I’m going to keep it at work, because the office air-con is so cold that I need to thaw myself out in the sun at lunchtime, but I do like to protect my delicate complexion.

Remember how I was growling about not being able to buy SPF moisturiser?  The day after, Kosmea (makers of fabulous SPF moisturiser that has been sadly out of production for over a year) sent me a letter saying that their moisturiser is now available again, plus they sent me a load of free samples.  Huzzah for customer service and little Aussie Battler companies!

[f.o. = finished object]

    Hey nice hat! And good to see you’re on a roll with the f.o.’s (how to punctuate that?) – I had a very productive weekend too! And, I will have to get me some of that Kosmea moisturiser – visit to biome store is on my list for next Brisbane trip.
