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
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)
