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!

After many weeks of trying to recover my cryptocurrency, I stumbled upon a cryptocurrency recovery company SpyWall(@) which was able to recover all the stolen funds I lost through cryptocurrency mining and trading. I was very naive to have invested all my entire savings into this platform believing I could double my savings but it ended up being a scam. I’m very fortunate that SpyWall was able to recover my funds. If you intend to recover your Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency, kindly send a complaint to the recovery team via

( SpyWall @ Techie .com )

Thank you

Formerly I presumed I would never be able to retrieve the money I had lost to fraudsters. I made an investment with a bitcoin investing website in the second quarter of 2023 just to discover that it was a scam. I got in touch with a few hackers in an effort to get my money back, but they all turned out to be swindlers who took my hard-earned cash. I was in a predicament, distraught, and certain that I had descended to my lowest point. All that changed when I came across a review of Coder Cyber Services online. An alternative could not cut to the quick because I was eager to recover all of the money I had spent on that website,that was the end of my troubles. I made the decision to try my luck once more, to which I got in touch with Coder Cyber Services and everything changed. The firm stepped in and quickly aided in the recovery of all of my money. I can attest to their high level of commitment and that they got the best recovery staff. You can also contact the firm by using:

Strong security measures must be put in place to prevent theft of your bitcoin. This includes setting up two-factor authentication, using complicated and one-of-a-kind passwords, employing hardware wallets or cold storage solutions, upgrading software and security patches on a regular basis, and being wary of phishing efforts and dubious connections. It's also critical to keep up with the most recent security procedures and educate yourself on potential dangers. A team of expert hackers from Coder Cyber Services has dedicated themselves to educating those of us deeply engaged in the cryptocurrency space so that we can protect ourselves against bitcoin theft. Make sure to contact Coder Cyber Services; they are akin to a school that will provide you with all the necessary knowledge. Email:
