Baby Hats

How to Make a Baby Hat | beanie sewing video tutorial with FREE PATTERN from MADE Everyday with Dana

Why are tiny things so stinkin’ cute??
I mean, really. Don’t you just want to eat these up? And the tiny baby cheeks that go inside them?  I guess the fabric says it all.

Ahhh! It’s too much cute!

But unlike the babies that will wear them, these hats are SUPER quick and easy. Haha.
You can whip one up for every day of the week. Then make hats for your family’s and friends’ babies.

They only take a little bit of fabric—perfect for those knit scraps.
You can get as creative as you like with a little pompom or other ball/trim on top, or leave it off entirely. And I have a free pattern for you here!

    SUPER CUTE! I’m so excited to try these

    Hi Dana,

    Thank you for this pattern! I’m wanting to make a small collection of hats for a friend who is having a baby in December. How might I adjust this pattern to fit a newborn? I’d love to make her a couple newborn size hats and a couple that are larger.

    Thank you!

    • 3) Dana

      The pattern is meant for newborns! So this will be perfect. And you can always roll the cuff of the hat up to make it “smaller” and work for more head sizes :). If you want it to be even smaller, just trim the round curve of the pattern down a bit.
      Have fun sewing!

    Fabulous !! Thanks for the free pattern! You are the best!!

    i couldn’t find the free printable cut out. where is it on your website?

    • 6) Bridgid MOnjure

      i’m sorry, i just found it. ; ]

      • 7) kathy Conley

        where did you find it. I am still looking

        • 8) Dana

          It’s here in the blog post. Click on the link above (right above the picture of me holding the hat)

    ADORABLE as always Dana, thank you ..💜

  6. 10) Janice

    Thank you for the free hat pattern. I love watching your youtube videos.

  7. 11) Susan

    I love these little hats. Thank you so much. I am surprised that you don’t need to use a stretch stitch around the perimeter or the hat. Is the straight stitch ok?

    • 12) Dana

      Thanks Susan. The straight stitch has worked for me, but if you find that your stitching is not holding up, you can definitely use a zigzag stitch. I just found that that zigzag made my curves a bit “lettuced” in spots.
      Thanks for watching!

  8. 13) Annette

    These are adorable. I have two family babies on the way and these will be perfect as we don’t get a lot of cold weather in Australia, at least where I’m from. Thank you so much for sharing.

  9. 14) Michele

    How could I create a larger pattern for an adult beanie?

    • 15) Dana

      Just use the same steps. If you have an adult size beanie that you like, use that to gauge your pattern size, and redraw the same lines out larger.

    Hi Dana,
    I absolutely love this! I have some baby showers coming up- these will be perfect gifts. If I wanted to make this for 6-12 months- how could I modify it?
    Thanks!
    Megan

    • 17) Dana

      You could increase the pattern out about a 1/2 inch…or so. To be honest though, this pattern would prob fit a 6-12 month old also. There’s a lot of stretch in it!

  11. 18) Kymona

    Totally awesome. I’m so glad I found you on youtube and now your blog. I can’t wait to try this then have my students try it. I have a question for you, do you know of any organization that I could rent sewing machines from for my 10 students. We would only need them for two classes.

  12. 19) Kiare De Goeij

    Hi Dana! I’m 13 years old, and I’ve loved watching all of your videos for years now!! I’m super excited to try these adorable baby hats, but just a quick question;
    Do I print out the patterns in A4??
    Thanks!
    Kiare

  13. 20) Riley

    Hi Dana I love watching all of your videos and am a huge fan of all of your tutorials. I was wondering when another season of MADE EVERYDAY will be coming out? I was also wondering if you will be making a tutorial about how to sew a dress?
    Thanks!
    Riley ❤

    • 21) Dana

      Hi Riley,
      Thanks! I try to put up a new video every month. So yes, more are coming! They just take a while to produce and make.
      But good news…one of the videos is about sewing a dress!
      Just make sure you subscribe to the channel, then you’ll know right when a new video has gone up….sometimes I get a few days behind, posting about it here on the blog 🙂
      Thanks for watching!

    Please tell me how to download the free PDF baby hat pattern? I click on the free download only to have it switch to Auto insurance. Thanks Christine Keck

    • 23) Dana

      Hi Christine – I’m not sure why you’re experiencing that. I just double-checked it and it worked from here. Maybe you’ve inadvertently clicked on an ad?

  15. 24) Priya Patel

    Hi Dana!
    I love watching your videos! You make everything look so simple to make 🙂
    I have a question: how do I adjust the size of hat to make it fit to a 2yo? I’m makibg this hat as part of a costume.
    Thanks!

  19. 30) Daniellle

    Love these I made them for my mom some she didn’t have to buy any and it was supper fun

  20. 31) sara

    Love this! You make amazing videos, do I print the pattern on a4?

    • 32) Dana

      Thanks! Just print to your standard size paper, and measure the little 1 inch (or 2 cms) box on the patter to make sure it printed accurately.

  21. 33) Ggh

    Dana love ,weldone ! Please where can i get this machine n how much ? Thanks dear

  22. 35) Diamond

    Hi am new to your channel I love your sewing project ,I am intrested in the baby lock sewing machine,but i cant find it on amazon,and on the website it’s available in south America. Any guide lines .

    • 36) Dana

      Hi thanks! Unfortunately, you can’t purchase Baby Lock online. You have to go into a retail shop. And I don’t think there are any in South America.
      But you can check on their website here:
      https://babylock.com/
      Sorry about that!

  23. 37) Tammy Powley

    Is there a pattern or instructions for the matching blanket? TIA

  24. 39) ALLI HOGAN

    Hi!
    I love what you make! The baby hats are so cute. How do I make the hat reversible? Do I use the same hat pattern or something different?
    You are so creative!

  25. 40) Nancy

    Hi Dana. I love your videos. Was wondering what the dimensions are for the pattern for the hat. I can’t print it. Thank you so much for your time and help 🙂

  26. 41) Josephine Urbanski

    Dear Dana, I have tried to copy your baby hat from my computer but it won’t work, so could you please try to give me an idea how wide it is at the bottom, so I can get an idea how wide it will be. Can’t get it downloaded I don’t have the means to download. Thank you very much I would appreciate anything you can do for me. Josann

  27. 42) Nancy JO

    I’m about to be a new grandma! I will be making lots of these adorable caps. Thanks for the tutorial and pattern. Love your videos!

    • 43) Dana

      Thanks Nancy! And congrats on your new grandbaby on the way!
