Fleece Hat Tutorial by clearkid Fleece Hat Tutorial by clearkid
Watch out, it's a big file!

Also see how to color fleece eyes to go on your hat. --> [link]
How to replace the band with ear-flaps! --> [link]
And how to sew on ears! --> [link]

Pattern: also notes the size of the rectangle
NOTE: pattern includes a 1/4" or .6cm seam allowance. That means sew that far from the edge. :)

If you are one of the many people only familiar with the metric system, I'm sorry I didn't include those measurements but here is a wonderful conversion tool. --> [link]

Alright you've been waiting for it so here it is. Firstly I'd like to state that this was a big pain to make. I have no idea how others can stand to make these.

Now this is just a basic hat so you can embellish it however you want. Please don't ask me how to make anything specific; either you'll have to figure it out or buy it from me. ;)

Please don't post this anywhere, kindly leave a link instead.
Tutorial (c) me, Clearkid - For the glory of God!

Edit: OK, so I've had several people express confusion on the last step. I will attempt to clarify it here:

First sew the short edges of the band together, forming a loop. Then fold it the long way with the seam inside so you have a double thick loop. Take your main hat part and turn it inside out with the seams facing out. Turn the hat upside-down like a bowl! Now, take your double thick band with it's two raw edges facing up, and place it INSIDE the hat so that those two edges line up the the edge of the hat. Pin it together starting with the seam of the loop lined up with the back seam of you hat. Then fold it in half and pin the front, and then the sides and in-between. Then you're going to sew the tree layers together at the top. When you've finished, take out your pins and fold the brim down, and turn the hat right-side-out again to finish.

Now, that's the detailed explaination. In essence, all you're really doing in the last step, is sewing the brim to the bottom of the hat in a way that hides the seam on the inside. Hope it helps guys! If you still have questions, feel free to post them here. :D

Want to see what others have made? --> [link]

And one last thing. If you make a hat, I'd love to see it. You can post your links here. :3

Thank you for making this tutorial! I made myself a bear hat, and the only thing I had to change was the size DX I have a big head :(
This may sound strange but...

Wow, just was looking back through sewing patterns on here, and I think I forgot to tell you I featured your tutorial on my blog a long time ago! I really loved this pattern, so I had to share it with others (credited to you, of course~)

Thanks for teaching me how to make fleece hats, btw! This was and still is a really great tutorial. :3
I sooo love your tutorial. :)

But can I ask one thing, can I adjust the sizes? I mean, remove some inches from the main pattern and add some inches to the rectangular pattern? I really want the rectangle part to be bigger. owo Would that still work?

Thanks for response if ever :>
