Children’s sun hat’s are summer essentials and I’ve always found I settle for whatever I can find in the shops, the first day the sun comes out!
This is a great pattern that can be made up quickly using just 2 fat quarters and some interfacing. You can use the fabric you choose or even something your kids like to encourage them to keep it on their head!
The pattern is quite straight forward to make up but there are a lot of curves to sew, so be sure to use your seam allowance for accuracy. Ironing as you go also helps.
We have the pattern for sale in the shop for £4.00 this includes the flat paper pattern and the interfacing you will need for the hat. The patterns come in 3 sizes and range from 6months – 4 years old.
The instructions are as follows and any questions please send us an email and we can explain further. Brighton sewing centre contact details
