This is my first post that features something sewn for an Our Generation Doll. I introduced this Our Generation Boy Doll in May. Since then he has undergone more touch ups to make him more boy-ish looking. He was originally Sadie.
After doing research, I was unable to find a free drivers cap pattern for an 18″ doll online. I ended up making this drivers cap using this human hat tutorial. The hat pattern originally would have made a hat with a circumference of 24 inches. Seeing how I had to get it down to about 11″, I sized the pattern down a lot.
The outer fabric is wool, with a lining of brown silk. For the brim I used flexible plastic. The ribbon is Offray 5/8″ Torrid Orange.
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!
