This little Camper Hat is loosely based on the sailor’s caps we were given each year at summer day camp while growing up. We would complete skills and earn “patches” that the counselors would draw around the brim.
It’s perfect for girls or boys ages 2T – 5T, and it is even reversible for two hats in one.
Difficulty level: Beginner
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.
