I love handmade hats - and I am the proud owner of quite a collection! So I particularly enjoy browsing this free hat sewing pattern section here at FreeNeedle, making plans for my next hat sewing project. We have a great range of free hat sewing patterns including warm winter hats as well as lightweight sun hats.
My handmade hat collection includes hats that I have made myself, as well as hats that others have made and have given me over the years and some handmade hats that I have purchased at craft fairs. One of the great things about making hats is that it is so easy to customize and personalize a pattern. Take a basic hat pattern and add some flowers and ribbons to turn a simple hat into a stunning eye-turner. Another useful thing about making hats is if your head is larger or smaller than normal, you can ensure that you make a hat with a great fit - something that isn't always possible with a shop bought hat!
You will find that we have broken hats down into subsections, so you will find baby hats in the baby sewing section. You will also find two subsections here for fleece hats and hats from refashioned materials.
