What pattern am I sharing? I'm stepping out on a limb and sharing a pattern I drafted and wrote myself - the Camper Hat pattern. I've been dying to start offering patterns and wanted to dip my toe in by sharing a simple free pattern for this cute little hat.
It's perfect for girls or boys ages 2T - 5T, and it is even reversible for two hats in one! Sewing time is minimal - under an hour for sure and with practice I was whipping these out in about 30 minutes. There are two methods for finishing the hat which I share in the tutorial, and the simple design lends itself to all sorts of creativity and embellishment - piping, trims, color blocking, mixing patterns, adding straps, etc.
I hope you don't think me too presumptuous for sharing this as my "Best of Summer Sewing", but I really do love it and have had so much fun making different versions of it for my girls and even boy versions destined for my nephews.
The pattern is available for immediate download in my Etsy shop, or on Craftsy.
Skill Level - Beginner
Materials - 1/4 yard each of main and lining fabrics
narrow double fold bias tape (method A)
3/8" seam allowance throughout
