I haven’t done much sewing, and when I do get out the sewing machine I like projects that are small and quick. When I wanted a new hat to replace one my daughter had outgrown, I had a lot of fun stitching these fine little top knot baby hats.
My baby girl had a simple white newborn hat. It was a stretchy little cotton hat with a knot on the top. I thought it looked so sweet, and I was sad when she outgrew it.
I was excited when I found this tutorial from Make It & Love It for the same type of hat, with a free template included. I enlarged it a bit so that I could make her some hats to fit her this fall. She’s about 8 months old now and this pattern is for 0-3 months, but it was easy to re-size.
The project was great for a beginner like me, and didn’t take long at all. I made her a colorful one and a black one. I love them! Another quick project to add to my list of handmade gifts for friends and family.
