Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sew a straight line
  • gather fabric (but I'll show you how)
  • sew a fairly precise seam

Pattern Description:

This printable PDF pattern shows you how to sew sun hats with either a ruffled or straight brim. Sunhat sizes for baby, toddler, boys and girls, 0-6 months through 4-8 years. Fully reversible for twice the wear!

Use the tutorial on my blog to add a chin strap: http://tiedyedivadesigns.blogspot.com/2010/05/how-to-add-chin-straps-to-your-sunny.html

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.

You'll need Adobe Reader to view it and regular 8.5" x 11" or A4 printer paper and a printer. No paper copy will be mailed.

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.

  • 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-3 years, 4-8 years


  • 3/8 yard fabric for each of main and reverse

You Will Also Need:

  • brimmed hat only, 3/8 yard fusible interfacing
