I love to make hats, and hats for costumes. Hats are probably my favorite part of costuming, in fact. So today I’m bringing you 10 Halloween hats you can make. Bonus: hats are super for dress up. They don’t take up a ton of space and are the crowning glory for any game of make believe.
First, learn how to use buckram (one of my favorite hatmaking materials) and felt to make this Man in the Yellow Hat (Curious George) hat.
Click HERE for the tutorial. This one would also make a great witch’s hat.
Or maybe your guy spends more time out of the kitchen and on the field. Then this play helmet from Sew a Straight Line has him covered.
A final material I love for Halloween hats is fleece. It doesn’t ravel, so it doesn’t have to be hemmed, and it stretches, so it’s great for hats. I used fleece to make this piglet hat, but change the shape of the ears and you could use it to make any kind of animal. Bonus: this tutorial comes with a free pattern. Click HERE for the tutorial.
Fleece is also used in the Yo Gabba Gabba! hats that Sew a Straight Line made.
Or maybe you need a hat for yourself while you accompany your kids trick-or-treating. And you don’t have much time left after sewing up awesome hats for your kids. In that case any of these from Delia Creates might be right up your alley. Click HERE for the tutorials.
I hope those give you some ideas for Halloween costumes! And if not, at least they could be cool dress-up bin additions.
