I found the cutest fabrics for this project from Hawthorne Supply Co! They offer custom-printed fabrics in a wide variety of prints as well as different substrates.

  • Rotary or Scissors
  • Sewing Machines
  • Clips or Pins
  • Iron
  • Knit Fabric (I prefer 95% Cotton 5% Lycra)

To start we will do a little bit of hacking to the Top Knot Pattern.

First off, cut the two bunny ears off of the hat pattern and round the top of the pattern.

Next slice the pattern in half and open up the pattern about 1/2 inch.

Add about 2 inches to the bottom of the baby turban pattern.

Lay these baby turban patterns on top of a folded piece of fabric with the greatest amount of stretch going across the pattern horizontally and cut them out.

Clip or pin the two hat pattern pieces of fabric with right sides together and sew around the rounded part of the hat.

Sew around the hat and the bow using a 3/8ths-inch seam allowance.

Leaving a small 1-inch opening about 2 inches from the top of the hat. When sewing the bow together leave a one inch opening on the bow as well for turning.

Turn the bow and the hat right side out after sewing.

Fold the bottom of the hat up 1/2 inch with wrong sides facing each other and hem the hat.

Pleat the fabric up to the opening and pinch it with one hand while you slide the bow into the opening with the other hand.

  1. Where can I get the pattern for the bow for the knit baby hat. I can print the hat body pattern, but the bow comes out with three sheets of lines from a very enlarged pattern.
    Please help. Sandy

  2. Do you machine wind the eloflex thread onto the bobbin as you would with regular thread, or do you have to hand wind it like you would with elastic thread? Thank you for the tutorial I’m excited to try this out!
