Simple Fleece Hat


  • 1/2 yard of fleece fabric
  • matching thread
  • sewing machine
  • scissors
  • 18 inches of strong thread, ribbon or yarn.



Measure the circumference of the head the hat will be worn on and add two inches. Cut the length of the fabric to the measurement.

Fold the fabric in half "hamburger style" pretty side in, and pin edge.

Sew a 1/2 inch seam but stop about 6 inches from the bottom and back stitch. Cut a 1/2 inch slit side ways into the the fabric right under where you stopped sewing.

Turn right side out, and sew a 1/2 inch seam on the last 6 inches. The last 6 inches is the brim of the hat.

Now fold the last 5 inches of fabric up and again to hide the cut edge. To keep the brim from unfolding sew a couple stitches in each side.

Put the hat on the head it is being made for and bunch the excess fabric together and tie tightly with strong thread, yarn or ribbon.

With the remaining fabric sticking out of the top, cut 1/3 inch strips all the way around to make a pom pom top.

Now the hat is ready to wear! This hat is super simple to make, warm and adorable. Suitable for children and adults alike!
