The weather is heating up here, and my freckles are starting to come out again. With skin as pale as mine (and my kids getting their skin from me), it’s time to think about sewing sun hats. I’ve made a few bucket hats for the kids in the past, but there are so many more options than that.
Keep the sunburn (and freckly noses) away with these sun hat sewing patterns for the whole family.
