    Hi, I’d like to make the bucket hat for my baby nephew, this will be the first hat I’ve made! I have some lovely ‘queue for the zoo’ Liberty fabric to use for it but it’s very light weight. Will this be ok to use or should I use fusible interlining on all of the pattern pieces?? I’d be grateful for any advice!

    I think you’d probably be just fine to skip the interfacing (except for the brim, where called for in the pattern) – it will change the feel of the hat, but for a baby I think softer/floppier will be just fine. I’ve made maybe 10 of these hats, all in quilting cottons but of various weights, and with whatever interfacing I have on hand (from very lightweight to relatively stiff), and they’ve all turned into functional hats with reasonable brims.

    Great, thanks for your advice. I will make a start on the hat tomorrow!
