    Cute! Cute! Cute! Can&#39;t wait to make one. Although I have YET to find or make a hat that my little one will leave on her head. I&#39;ll try again!

    Awesome pattern, but I have made 2 of them now and followed directions completely, but I&#39;ve had to put 2 little pleats in the back. Somehow I end up with extra brim. Are all of the seams 3/8&quot;? Any idea why this is happening? I love the pattern, but I&#39;d be happy if it would turn out!

    1. Shauna@shwinandshwin

      Yes all the seams are 3/8&quot; seam allowance. Are you adding interfacing to the brim? The brim is circular so much of it is cut along the bias and some fabrics have more stretch and give on the bias than others. The interfacing will help stabilize the brim a bit to keep it from over stretching which could be what&#39;s leading to the problem. You may also want to double check that the brim

    2. Julee Posyluzny

      Okay that makes sense. Yes, I am adding interfacing to the brim, and I was so surprised at how easily the crown pieces went together. I was cutting out that center back piece on the fold as well. If anyone else has done that, I just made two little pleats at the back to work it all in. They look ok, almost like they are meant to be there, but now I&#39;m anxious to see how one goes together the

    3. Shauna@shwinandshwin

      The A and B circle markings will meet together to create a full circle when the pieces match up.

      Same situation here. . Doesn’t work out with 3/8” seam allowance . Cute just wrong pattern sizes. Maybe I’ll try it again minus interfacing in th crown parts and take th smallest seam allowance possible. I cut nearly 2” off th brim band length.

    5. Brenda

      I have the same problem with one I’m making

    6. Missy

      I had the same problem and now have two pleats in the back of mine too. Very cute hat but not quite as shown.

    Just read the post below. My email addresses for summer, since school is out are— [email protected] or [email protected] THANKS!

    Hi Shauna! Great photos and tutorial. The hat looks great. I&#39;m finding the brim is 2&quot; too big. Also, one of the brim pieces on the pattern doesn&#39;t specify a fold line but in assumed, since it would then be too short without it.<br />Am I doing something wrong?

    1. Shauna@shwinandshwin

      The brim should be all one piece, it prints on 2 pieces of paper but you tape it together (at the markings) to create one brim piece and then the whole brim piece is cut on the fold. Hopefully that will help.

    2. Cindy Kwok

      Ha! That makes sense now. Thanks so much!

    3. Julee Posyluzny

      Thanks Cindy! Sounds like you were having the same problem that I was. I just put two little pleats on either side of what would be the center back, to work it all in, I can email you pictures if you&#39;d like. I think it looks okay, and almost like they are meant to be there!

    4. Cindy Kwok

      I changed the brim and it&#39;s still about 2&quot; too big. Also, I measured the pieces of the crown and it came out to about 18&quot; instead of the 20&quot; meant for the brim.

    5. Cindy Kwok

      Hey Julee! I made the changes Shauna suggested but the brim piece was still too big, or the crown too small. I did pleat the back also. Overall, I love thr project, bc it&#39;s cute, useful, and quick, even with a little one running around all day. Here&#39;s a photo mine my daughter is wearing it! <br /><br />

    6. Julee Posyluzny

      Cindy I have not heard from Shauna but I cut 1 inch off the pattern and it worked great! (2 inches total) hope this helps! Julee

    7. Shauna@shwinandshwin

      Sorry Ladies! I will have to take a look at the brim piece in a bit to see what may be off. Sounds like taking an 1&quot; is the best solution 🙂

    8. Cindy Kwok

      Good idea. Let&#39;s cut off an inch. Going to make another one bc I used scrap fabric and didn&#39;t use interfacing so I could keep it light. Love it. Here&#39;s my girl wearing it with watermelon dripping down her chin. Lol.<br /><br /><br />

    9. Julee Posyluzny

      Darling! I saw your photos! What a little doll with the watermelon chin too! I do like this pattern, it just took a little adjusting! Thanks

    Hi! Great looking hat! I am going to make one for my daughter. What is the seam allowance?

  15. Anne

    Hi, I made this hat today and while I love it (and the instructions!), I’ll give it away because after I made the necessary darts in the brim (seems the pattern isn’t fixed) the hat wouldn’t fit either of my daughters. Now our neighbour will get a cute, widebrimmed sunhat for her new baby.

    I need the the PDF with the yellow hat you made some straps. What size did you cut out?

  21. Sheila

    I can’t thank you enough for the lovely pattern. I know how much work you put into it as I’ve tried to make patterns and it’s a real challenge. Having said that, I’m just about to cut out my first hat and will do as your followers have suggested and take 1 inch off each piece of the brim. Thanks also for your other patterns. I’m going to take a closer look because I’m hooked on sewing for my new grand daughter!

    Thanks thanks thanks!
