How to Make Baby sunhat pattern with ruffles and ties

This free baby sunhat pattern should fit a 6-12 month old; Elise is 10 months old and it’s super cute on her petite-ish noggin. Alternatively, you could easily size this hat up or down on a photocopier. Free tutorial, baby sunhat pattern and step-by-step instructions are all below. Bring on the sunshine!

Required Material:

  • Kathy’s free pattern for a baby sunhat with ruffles and ties (PDF – sized for 6-12 months)
  • 1/2 yard of fabric
  • Rotary fabric cutter, self-healing cutting mat and clear acrylic ruler
  • Good fabric scissors
  • Good iron (like Rowenta) and Ironing board
  • Thread
  • Pins (I prefer glass head pins)
  • Sewing machine

Cut your free baby hat pattern pieces
Print my free baby sunhat pattern. It’s sized for 6-12 months so you can scale it up or down as needed. You can use one fabric print or two.

Cut 4 triangles for outside crown
Cut 4 triangles for inside crown lining
Cut 4 brims (2 top, 2 lining) – cut 2 brims right side up, then flip the pattern so that you’re cutting 2 brims wrong side up
Cut 2 strips 16″ x 1″ for the ties
Cut 2 strips 25″ x 2″ for ruffle

For this tutorial you’re going to sew everything at 3/8″ seams. I usually do 1/2″ seams for my tutorials but wanted them to be a bit smaller for Elise’s baby head.

Create the outside crown and crown lining
Take four of your crown pieces. Line up two pieces, right sides together, and sew along the side. Repeat with the other two pieces.

Press seams open; they will be slightly curved. Pin the two pieces together, right sides together.

Sew. You’ll now have one sewn crown piece. Press the seam open. Repeat to make the lining crown.

Create the brim
Grab your four cut pieces for your brim. Now because it’s a bit of an asymmetrical brim, be sure to match pieces together so the brim top will match your brim bottom.

Sew two pieces of the brim together to make the outside brim. Press the seams open. Repeat to create inside lining brim.

Create the ruffle
Sew pieces together on the ends, pressing seams flat. It should look like a large circle. Iron the circle in half, wrong sides together. The right side of the fabric will be on top and bottom now, and there’s now a finished edge and a raw edge. Using a basting stitch, sew two rows of stitching around the raw edge of the circle. I stop at the seams and then start again because I find it’s easier to gather (in the next step). Match the seams of the ruffle to the seams of the brim. Pin. Pull the gathering threads gently to gather the fabric into ruffles. Pull it until it’s the same size as the outside of the brim. Pin the ruffle onto the edge of the brim, raw edges together. Sew the ruffle onto the brim. Place the other brim piece on top of the ruffle piece you just sewed, basically making a ruffle sandwich with the two right sides together. Pin and sew. Turn right side out and iron. Finished brim is 18 inches circumference. Topstitch the brim near the ruffle edge. Sew the brim shut by sewing close to the inside circle edge.

Take out any basting stitches that show (yikes, I had a lot on this one …that’s what I get for sewing fast during naps).

Attach hat crown to the brim
Pin the crown onto the brim, right sides together matching seams. Sew around the crown to attach it to the brim.

On the right side of the hat, iron the seam open so the raw edges are up inside the crown. It’s starting to look like a hat now, yes? Make and attach ties
Fold ties in half and iron. Fold raw edges into that center crease. Iron again. On one end, make a triangle with the ends and fold in. Sew along the open edge of the tie to sew it shut. Repeat for the second tie. Now you’re going to attach the ties to the hat. Find the two sides of the hat. Pin the raw edge of the tie to the raw edge of the crown at the side seams. Sew back and forth a bunch of times so it’s secure. Repeat on the other side. Attach hat lining
Turn lining under 1/2″ along the raw edge and iron. Turn the lining so the wrong side is on the outside. Pin the lining inside the hat, matching seams. Put your pins on the outside of the hat because you’ll be sewing from that side to make sure it looks nice on the outside. And here’s what it looks like inside… Sew it all together, stitching close to the brim, catching the lining underneath as you go. I’m not a huge fan of blind stitching like this but it’s the way I figured out how to do it, so there you go. Suggestions welcome. Tie that hat on and go outside!

How to sew a beach bag and sun hat for girls

we all want to update your wardrobe and add to it with bright colors! They are no exception and our little fashionista! I suggest that you make with me the summer set of accessories for girls, which is suitable for walks and for going to the beach.

Required Material:
– Cotton fabric in stripes of many colors (or any bright figure), I had the segment size 50h55 cm;
– white cotton fabric, about 60h150 cm;
– colored trim cotton fabric appliqué;
– thread color patches;
– a strip of calico size 8h60 cm, a cut on the bias,.
– zipper length 45 cm;
– glue spider’s web;
– fleece.

And tools: sewing machine, scissors, rulers, tape measure, pins and needles, a pencil or a marker for the tissue. For manufacturing applications need a paper with Teflon coating. I use a basis of the self-adhesive film, which is the torn and discarded. One of her party who, without marking, smooth and does not stick to her gossamer.

Handbag:
I cut out the following details, adding seam allowances:
1. The upper part – 2 pieces.
2. The lower part – 1 piece.
3. The inner portion (lining) – 1 item.
4. Handles – 2 pieces.
5. One particular size of 5×7 cm, for processing the zipper.
All parts (except №5) to duplicate interlining. So far, we set it aside and leave one detail №1 – on it will do applique.

I drew this picture, which you can either print, increasing to the desired size, or transfer from the screen and attached a sheet. Circuits cut.

1. A multi-colored patch of cloth to do with the adhesive layer. To do this, cut the adhesive cobweb right size, put on a scrap, top closing the basis of “self-adhesive” (Teflon side on cobweb) and ironing a few seconds. We give a little cool and carefully separate the fabric from the paper.
2. Then, the part of the polymer layer, translate circuit parts our application pencil and cut. Note that the details you need to translate the mirror!
3. spread the composition of all the elements in the detail of bags and glue carefully.

Sew each element of the applicator or a zigzag stitch, picking up the thread in the fabric tone.

Details, calling to each other, you need to stick and sew in order, starting with the “bottom”. For example, the first on the palms glued and sewn part of the island, then the trunks and then only twigs.

PARTS bags together, iron out the seams.

Fold in half to get the item right sides, grind and iron out the side seams.

1. We form the bottom of a bag. To this end, the side seam is aligned with the fold of the bag. Lay off from the resulting corner and 4 cm carries a perpendicular line.
2. stitched by the intended line, do not forget about the tie. Cutting off, leaving a seam allowance of 1 cm.
3. turns bedplate 8 cm wide.

Further, on the upper edge of the bag, at a distance of 2 cm from the side seams put check marks.

1. On the front side of the zipper by placing it face down, starting from the reference mark.
2. On the other hand, turn down the zipper, without reaching the reference mark, as in the photo.

1. Sew on the zipper.
2. Similarly, we make the interior of the bag: take part №3, sew the side seams and process corners, forming a bedplate. We put ready “lining” within the base, aligning the side seams.

Connecting parts of the upper edge, along with the seam lightning, leaving no gap wired about 12-15 cm for a reversing.

Everted bag through the opening.

1. reduce an into the “lining” top of the bag.
2. Leading the finishing line of the upper edge of the bag while sewing up the hole for version.

Process the end of lightning.
1. Details of the size 5×7 cm folded in half right sides and iron out sew seam.
2. We put the item on the zipper so that the seam turned to its lower side.
3. stitched by lightning and cut off the excess.
4. turn away detail on the front side.
5. Refill the open cut inside and sutured or blind stitches by hand or machine stitching.

1. Treat the handle of the bag. Details are folded along the front side, grind, and iron out the seams.
2. Screw and handle. Open sections at the ends refueled inside and ironed.

Mark location handles: this bag from the center to both sides defer to 7 cm and 3 cm down from lightning.

We sew the handle to the bag, making the tie in the form of rectangles.

We admire the result.

Print out the pattern by writing the image border in A4 sheet. Fine dotted pattern to finish without  Panama.

I cut out the details, adding seam allowances and transfer the reference marks.
Bedplate – 2 pieces.
Crown – 2 pieces of folded.
Visor – 2 pieces of folded, one piece duplicate interlining.
Additionally cut out of striped fabric 2 details size 8h15 cm size strip and 6h70 cm ruffles on the visor.

2. Unscrew and to iron visor.

One section of the strips are treated with “Moscow” seam:
Step 1. bend on the wrong side of 0.3-0.5 cm and lay a line close to the edge, cut off the seam allowance close to the line.
Step 2. bent a second time and the second lay-in stitch seam weld or 0.1 cm from it.

We prick on the visor strip, forming a counter-folds and keeping symmetry.

Tack and frill to the visor cut off its excess allowance.
