Lately I've been sewing for little people in my life.
Most boys are fascinated by trains, so I thought it would be fun to sew an engineer's cap for a grandson. Doing what we all do when we're looking for something in particular, I Google-searched online and found this tutorial for making one. It's suitable for a girl too.
I already had the fusible interfacing, brim stiffener, lining, and 3/4-inch elastic, so my only purchase was ticking fabric.
It was surprisingly easily to put together. It looks nice here, but the proof will be when a cute little boy I know is around, to try it on.
My second (of four) 3Q finish in Leanne's Finish Along is this hexagon quilt - Happy Hexagons. All pieces were cut from my stash using a Hex 'n More ruler, the "more" being triangles.
Backing fabric is Simply Color by V&Co.
Quilting is an all over hooked spiral design.
Striped binding was cut on the bias so as to create a spiral... a barber pole effect. Gosh that dates me! When was the last time you saw a barber pole?!

Happy Hexagons has already arrived at the home of our new grand-niece, Jovie. Hoping it will be put to good use.
