Baby Hat Tutorial


These are super simple. You can easily whip up a dozen in an hour or so!

From a yard of fleece fabric, you can make 6 baby/toddler hats. If you want to make bigger hats, get 1 1/4 to 1 1/3 yards to make four teen/adult hats.

Your fleece should be approximately 60" wide. It will be stretchy between the two selvages. Keep that in mind, which way it stretches. We want the stretchy part to go around the circumference of our heads!

Here are directions for baby hats and heads. (I googled baby head circumference. 18"-20" is average for a baby head. For adult heads, measure your own and size up as needed!)

Trim off the selvage edges. Cut the fleece into two pieces, 60" x 18". Cut each 60" long piece into 3 pieces, about 19" wide. You should now have 6 pieces, 19" x 18".

Fold each piece in half, right sides together, with the 19" sides together. (If your fabric doesn't have an obvious wrong or right side, don't worry about it. However, just a little tidbit, if you gently tug on the stretchy side, the edge of your fabric will curl. The curl will point to the right side. Fascinating, eh?) Using a fairly large zigzag stitch (I used the size that my machine defaults to, w 5.0, l 2.0) stitch the seam up. You're stitching up along the non-stretchy way. Make sense? You can chain piece these, then snip apart.


Next, take each tube, and fold up a 4" cuff to the wrong side, matching the seam you just sewed. Again, zigzagging, stitch the cuff, just catching the edge of the fabric. (Don't stress too much, this won't be seen.) You will be stitching  the stretchy way this time. (For adult hats, you can go up to 5-6" on the cuff.)





Almost there.

Turn your hat right side out, and fold so that the seam is on one side. Take you scissors and cut a fringe on the top of the hat, about 1/4"  wide and about 4" deep, all the way across. (I didn't photograph these steps with the original hats, so my example below is a just a prop. You'll get the idea!)



Near the seam, take two neighboring fringe pieces, wrap one to the left, one to the right, scrunch up the hat, and using the fringe pieces, tie them together around your bundle of fringe to make a pom pom and close up the top. Fold up your cuff and you did it!








These would make a great charity/community service project. Easy enough for kids to get involved. Have fun with them. Oh, and did I mention, they're super warm and cozy? Bonus!

I love them! I just wanted to stop by and let you know that I just made one! It was soooo easy and only took a couple of minutes! I just finished a camo fleece crib set for a lady (comforter, bumper pads and some nursery pillows) I made one of these hats with the leftover fleece....just a little extra surprise for her! I posted the camo bedding on my blog earlier this evening, I will post the hat one there maybe tomorrow! Thanks so much!

I'm so happy to share this with you that can read / see this now. When I started trading binary and forex a few months ago, I really didn't have the necessary tools to trade and I lost a lot until I met Pablo Martinez who taught me all about market psychology as he managed my account for me. Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I'm earning around $35,500 - $30,000 profits per week. Here is his WhatsApp no: +44 7520 636249 or his email address: pm7234029@gmail.com

Once I got off the phone with the broker (Mr. John Michael) from HASHFLARE I was convinced they were the real deal. What strikes me the most about them was the profit I was able to make in the short term. I eventually needed money to attend to an urgent financial situation only for HASHFLARE to deny my withdrawal request after my contract with them expired already and then went on maintenance indefinitely. I became so worried that I had to take more loans to attend to my needs. I was stuck waiting for HASHFLARE’s approval to make withdrawals but all to no avail. They stopped responding to my emails and other forms of correspondence. Checking online to see if this was normal because I got confused then I saw so many negative reviews of HASHFLARE. I knew for a fact I have been scammed. I deposited a total of 226k euros. I was desperately in need of help and did an intensive search on wealth recovery companies. After I was able to sieve out a number of recovery companies with no URLs, I decided to carry on with GLOBALASSETRECOUP.COM after seeing reviews that the company helped recovered monies lost to fraudulent companies and is based in the metropolitan city of NY. A forensic analysis of my dealings with HASHFLARE was carried out and my claim was found to be legitimate. I got 85% of my money back through this international wealth recovery company. Without a doubt, HASHFLARE & TRADENIX are scam firms and they do not have your interests at heart. Send a mail to contact AT globalassetrecoup. c om if you are a victim of fraud now!

I was the victim of a phishing attack, and I lost $24.4 million in my trezor wallet. I immediately opened a case with thehackerspro.com support@thehackerspro.com and they came to my aid. I detached $20.4 million in my wallet being the first part of the 24.4 million recovered and i am waiting for the BNB gas fee to go through so that i can detach the rest from the outsourced wallets
