Toddler Bucket Hat - FREE sewing pattern

Now is your chance to make this great-looking Bucket Hat for a toddler. The designer has very kindly produced an excellent sewing pattern and tutorial for FREE, which you can access by clicking on the link below.

The designer has also made this hat reversible so you get two hats for the price of one, and the way she has made the brim of the hat will give you the option of having the brim up or down. We think it looks great made with two contrasting fabrics, especially with the brim turned up to reveal a splash of color or fun print. 

Toddler Bucket Hat - FREE sewing pattern

The pattern has been made in size 2T/3T or approximate head circumference of 19″. If you have a different size toddler you will need to measure their head and make a small adjustment to the pattern.

What you will need to make the Toddler Bucket Hat:-

  • 1/4 yard of the main fabric,
  • 1/4 yard of coordinating fabric for the reverse side of the hat,
  • Optional: 1/2 yard of fusible interfacing if your fabric is lightweight or you want extra stiffness in your hat (1/4 yard needed if you only want to interface one side of the hat),
  • Heat n Bond Lite scraps for the appliques,
  • Optional: fabric scraps for the appliques,
  • Basic sewing supplies,
  • Sewing machine.
