A few days ago I made my first hat! It was for a human, so afterwards I wanted to make a cute hat for my doll. I did some research on patterns, because I never really had searched for hat patterns before. Among the free hat patterns I found, the Trendy Newsboy Cap from Daydream Doll Boutique. I used plastic for the brim. The pattern didn’t include a lining. I followed the instructions for the outside of the hat for the brown silk lining I inserted to make it look better inside and out.
After making the Fall Time Dress out of a 18×20 quilting square I bought at Hobby Lobby for 84¢, I had enough fabric left to make the hat out too! The fabric has a lot of colors, so the hat could go with many different colors.
Today is a weekend and daylight savings day! I’m planning on saving some time to sew!
