From Seamwork Magazine:

The Rey belt bag and bucket hat are the perfect accessories to kick off your spring and get you ready for summer—and they are both so fun to sew.

For a total palate cleanser, shop for playful buckles, webbing, and 14” zippers for the belt bag. This bag has a fully lined pouch with darts and a gusset to store more of your stuff and an adjustable strap to cinch it around your waist. It’s scrap-busting, and it also helps you learn some new sewing skills, like sewing a reverse corner.

Make the Rey bucket hat if you need a little break from sewing clothing. Wouldn’t it be great to say that you made your own hat? This hat is reversible, lined, perfect for scrap-busting, and comes in three sizes. Use contrasting or matching topstitching along the brim, and if you plan to be outdoors, pick a UV protective fabric.
