I'm Jen Hagedorn, the designer behind Tie Dye Diva sewing patterns. My line of downloadable sewing patterns focuses on easy-to-sew and easy-to wear classic clothing designs for baby and child, with just a touch of whimsy like animal ears on fleece hats and ruffled bottoms on baby wear. I aim to make sewing a gratifying and educational process that gives you a result you're proud of.
Tie Dye Diva patterns was launched in 2007. The line currently features more than 70 unique sewing patterns for baby, children, adults and home. Besides the PDF format patterns you find on this site and at retail sites around the web, you can find Tie Dye Diva patterns in publications including:
Stash Books' Hat Shop: 25 Projects to Sew, from Practical to Fascinating (Design Collective), compiled by Suzanne Woods,
Wiley Press, Sewn Hats by Carla Hegeman, and Crim
Annie's Sewing Sew Special Baby Gifts.
I am also a workshop instructor here on Craftsy.com. My Twirl Skirt with Bloomers pattern workshop is a great way for beginning sewers to sew a beautiful garment with help available at every step of the way.
I live in Northern California with a supportive and patient husband who never complains about having serger tails sticking to his shirt, and 3 beautiful children who are great fit models, accomplished fabric-stash refolders and enthusiastic critics of my work. Come join me and many Tie Dye Diva patterns fans in our interactive group on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/tiedyedivapatterns/

Recommended sewing experience for the ruffled brim style - learner/Beginner - very easy!
Recommended sewing experience for the straight brim style - Beginner/Advanced beginner - requires some careful sewing to match the crown and brim.

Items produced using the information in this eBook may be used for personal use, as well as for sale in limited quantities by in-home sewers. We request that hats for sale state that the item is made with a Tie Dye Diva pattern.
I designed this for my own little one and I have made a PILE in his 3 years on earth! They are great for the sun, warm in babycord or flannel for the winter, and fun to wear reversed. See my blog for a free add-on tutorial that shows you how to add a velcro chinstrap.
