A simple fleece hat can be fun gift for friends or provide comfort for someone in a less-than-fortunate situation. You can make a fleece hat for family, friends, yourself or as a volunteer project in only 10 minutes. You'll need basic sewing knowledge, such as how to operate a sewing machine, to complete this craft.
Things You'll Need
- Fleece, approximately 14-by-24 inches
- Sewing machine
- Tape measure
Measure the circumference around the head the hat is to fit. Cut a piece of fleece 14 inches long and as wide as the measurement around the head.
Fold the fleece in half lengthwise. Fold again lengthwise so the fleece is in four layers. At the edge of both sides, approximately 6 inches from the top, cut all four layers of fleece to a point at the top. The cut will be slightly curved.
Unfold fleece and with right sides together, sew each of the curved sections. On the two edges, sew the curved section, leaving the straight section unsewn.
Turn the hat right-side out and sew the straight edge. Fold up the bottom of the hat, which will cover the stitching. Sew on tassels or fringe for decoration if you choose.
Tips & Warnings
- If the pattern on the fleece is in one direction, make sure it is oriented properly before cutting.
