Free Pattern Fleece Bunny Hat Tutorial

1- Assemble and cut out the Pattern

You can find instructions on how to assemble the pattern here.

Cut out the pattern pieces for the hat.  For contrast I recommend cutting out the 2 of the ear  with the hat fabric and 2 with a contrasting fabric. Cut 2 of the basic hat pattern.

2 – Begin to pin and sew the ears

Taking two of the ear pieces, put right sides together and line up the bottoms of the pieces.   .  Line up the exterior edges of the piece and pin, leaving the bottom (the flat side) open for turning.  For a baby hat use a .5 inch seam, for a child or adult hat use a .25 inch seam. Snip curves and point and turn right side out. If desired top stitch up the center of the hat 3/4 of the way from the bottom to add character.

3 – Place the ears and make the hat.

Place and pin the ears where you would like them to be on the hat (a third of the way down seams to work well).  You want the tops of the ears facing in, sitting on the right side of the fabric, you will then place the other half of the hat (right side down) on top.Using a 1/2 inch seam allowance, sew each side of the hat (the long curved side to the point before it dips into a “V”.  Be sure to leave the bottom (the brim) open. Now that you’ve sewn the sides of the hat it’s time to close the top.  Fold the hat in half so the seams you just sewed are touching.  Pin the “v” on each side closed.  Sew one seam along the top of the hat closing the v on both sides. (This will make a rounded top.)Turn the brim edge under 1 inch (or more/less if you like) pin and sew a zig-zag stitch over the edge of the fabric.  Snip any loose threads and turn right side out.
Tada!  Your hat is finished. Tip: Because of the layers, sew slowly over the sections with the ears – it will keep the stitches more even

  1. I’m sorry if this is already answered, but I looked through your website and didn’t see it. I am pretty new to sewing and want to make the bunny hat for a friend’s 2 and a half year old daughter. Would I use the baby size pattern or child size?
    Thanks so much!
