If you have small pieces of scrap denim, you can construct a simple hat for children in no time at all! This pattern shape can also be modified to create a skull cap!
- Cut six pieces in denim and six in contrast fabric for each hat desired. Join the pieces two by two, then connect the six pieces together. You hat will be reversible.
- Pin the sewn contrast fabric lining inside the sewn denim hat, making sure the right side of the fabric lining is facing you looking inside the hat.
- After pinning the lining inside the denim, sew in place. Pin double width bias tape to cover raw edges.
- Sew in place.
These simple hats take very little time to complete. Embellish as desired. Small buttons or lace can be used to embellish if you wish. Don't forget to 'press and sew' as you go! Things look nicer if you remember to press as you go along.

Can you give aprox. dimensions of hat sections and what size it would be for? I've made these before for myself, but not for children. Thanks! Love the use of scrap fabric!
