Reversible Fleece Hat: Kids Clothes Week Day 6
When I asked my teenage son what he wanted for Kids Clothes Week, he was certain he didn’t want me to sew him anything. But later he found a hat that needed repaired, and said if I really wanted to I could make him another one like it. So today I have a reversible fleece hat tutorial for you. Because you are going to want to make one of these! I made this for my 14 year old son who refused to model it for me and is too big for me to make him. (Seriously~ he’s several inches taller than me and I’m six feet tall!)
Reversible Fleece Hat Tutorial:
Start with a hat that fits well on the recipient. Start with fleece, flannel or some equally soft material. I used fleece and a fleece baby romper.
Cut out 4 hat pieces, two that are shorter and two that are longer. Use the existing hat for the width measurement plus a 1/4 inch.
Sew each of the matching pieces together, right sides together.
Sew a partial seam across the top on each piece. Pinch a small seam using your fingers. This shapes the hat to fit the head better. (I actually only did this on my fleece material because the Bears graphic was in the way on the other piece.)
Tuck the longer hat piece inside the smaller hat piece and line up the edges.
Sew together the two hat pieces, leaving a small 2 inch slot for turning.
Turn the hat.
Hand stitch together the opening.
Stitch together a short amount (1 inch or less) at the top to hold 2 hat pieces together.
Go Bears and no bears! Sorry. But you will seriously need one a reversible fleece hat when cold weather hits. Thanks to Thomas for his modeling skillz. The hat is sized for a bigger head, and super duper warm!
