Toddler's Summer Hat Tutorial
How to make an easy summer hat for your child using the beautiful Winnie the Pooh fat quarters and plain contrasting fat quarters. These fabrics are fabulous and you can make hats with the different characters and colour ways.
What you will need:
-Sewing machine with matching threads
-4 fat quarters. I used the Winnie the Pooh pack with the Craft Cotton Co plain contrasting pack of fat quarters and interfacing.
I have used a quarter inch sewing seam.
Making the hat:
For the hat I used three shapes. I drew a 7” circle. A wide band 4 ½ " x 7 ½ ". And a narrow band 13” x 2 ½ “. I slightly curved the bands so they would fit around the hat easier.
The size of the hat can be changed easily by making smaller or larger shapes for the template.
Using two fat quarters of contrasting fabric, cut out two of each shape, one in each colour, and cut out one of each shape in the interfacing.
Iron the interfacing onto the outside fabric.
Taking the outside interfaced fabric, clip and then sew the wide band to the hat top, then the narrow band to the wide band to make the brim of the hat.
Repeat the above with the lining fabric. Then with right sides together pin the lining hat to the outer fabric hat along the brim edge making sure to leave a gap for turning.
Turn the hat to the right side out and hand sew the gap along the brim.
