To get the pattern to make this hat, please visit my Etsy shop for MakeMeDo here.

The A4 pdf pattern includes detailed diagrams and text to make it easy for you to make, plus template pieces to print out onto A4 paper and use to cut your fabric pieces. There’s also a template for adding a plastic or cardboard insert to the peak to make it firm.

Finished hat measures 56cm in circumference (fits average ladies’ head), but pattern also includes advice on how to adjust the size.
Designed for confident beginners, the hat involves sewing along a curve, topstitching, making and attaching binding, and slip stitching by hand.

This stylish baker boy hat is handy all year round and can be made in almost any fabric. The segment design makes it simple to construct so you could make as many as you like!
Hat A is made in a lightweight, floral quilting cotton fabric, which is perfect for summer. It will keep the sun out of your eyes without making you hot.
Hat B is made in denim fabric cut from an old pair of shorts, which is great for spring and autumn.
Try using a heavier fabric to make a winter version.

To make this hat, you will also need:
• 50x60cm fabric.
• One 1.5cm-diameter button (optional)
• Matching and/or contrasting cotton thread
• Sewing machine
• Hand-sewing needle
