Now you can sew Christmas Hats

for EVERYONE!!!!

At first I had planned to design the free Christmas Hats Pattern for all my Funky Friends soft toys only BUT I had so much fun sewing them that I have added to the pattern and included sizing the pattern for kiddies, teenagers/small adults as well as a large adult size so there’s a size to fit everyone!

I took a pic of me wearing each of the 3 hat sizes for comparison. Here I am modelling the kiddies, teenage(small adult) and large adult version of the Christmas hats.

Small, medium and

OMG where I am I???

Free Christmas hats pattern - fleece

For the toy’s hats, I made the white band from fleece BUT I used minkee fabric for the human sized hats which makes the hats feel so gorgeous and cuddly, and quite luxurious! I think I’ve been spoilt now – I’ll never go back to those cheap and nasty Christmas hats from the dollar shop!!! LOL!!! 😀

Sooooooooo  if you are looking for a easy Christmas sewing project to get into the festive mood …

  15. Laura

    Thank you for this, I printed out pattern but have a (probably dumb) question. Which direction do I put the “hat band” piece down? So the long side of the band is along the stretchier side of the fleece or along the not-stretchy?
    Thanks so much!

    • Pauline

      There is a lot of info on the pieces so it took me a while to find it – Cut out all the pieces with the arrows facing in the direction of the grain. (With the most stretch sideways!):)

      • Laura

        Thank you for the pattern help and for posting the pattern. I made 8 of these in a couple flamingo prints for my family and another family who we are meeting up with in New Orleans for Christmas (including for the teenagers!) Each hat topped with a glitter pom pom. 🙂 They are going to look so cute on our group.
