Easy Hat for 18 Inch Doll

This easy hat for an 18 inch doll is a great project to introduce young people to sewing. It will teach them to measure cut and do a simple stitch.


11" x 11" piece of Fleece
Fabric Scissors
Needle and Thread or Sewing Machine


Cut fleece to 11" x 10" so it stretches the long way. Save the 1" scrap.

Fold in half with right sides together.

Stitch along the short ends to make a tube that will fit over your doll's head.


Leave the last 2" unstitched. This will become part of your fringe. Cut 2" slits every 1/2" along this end. Turn right-side out.

Gather fringes and tie tightly with scrap piece.

Roll bottom up twice to make band. (see diagram below)
