Free Ladybug Hat Pattern Tutorial

1 – Cut out pattern pieces and pin

You can find instructions on how to assemble the pattern here.Cut out 4 of the bug antennae, plus 2 of the basic hat pattern.Dragon hat:  t you just need two of each pattern piece.

2 – Sew the Antennae

Sew each antennae together.  For Baby hats use a .5 inch seam.  For children and adult hats use a .25 inch seam.  Sew two sides of the antennae , leaving the straight side open for turning. Snip curves taking car not to snip through seam.  Turn antennea right side out, pushing the fabric so you will have a curve. Stuff each antennae with a little bit of poly fill or fleece scraps, making sure that there is a finger width’s of space at the bottom with no filling.
Note: pattern has been tweaked since I made the sample – the antennae is slightly shorter so it will stand up better.

3 – Finish Assembling the Hat

Place antennae on right side of fabric as pictured.  Pin in place. Then baste in place (this will make it easier to sew together.) Place other side of hat right side facing in on top, sandwiching the antennae .tip: Be sure the antennae are facing inward.   Using a .25 inch seam allowance sew the antennae into place (this will make it easier to sew the hat all together) 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.
