Fleece Sleep Hat

Dillon asked me to make him a “Night Cap” like I made for him and Kim when they were little.  I made them matching Christmas night caps and sleep shirts.  It’s funny the things you/they remember from Christmases past!

So, I decided to make him one out of fleece.


<!–more keep reading! –>

I started with a piece of plain black fleece.  I had to measure the circumference of his head and then added 2 inches for a wide seam allowance.

His head measured 23 inches so I cut two long triangles at 12 1/2 inches wide at the base.

I began by pinning and sewing up the sides of the triangle, right to the top.

I clipped the point at the top of the hat.

When the sides were done, I made a double fold hem and sewed that up.

And that’s all it takes to make a fleece Sleep hat!  They make great Christmas gifts when made with a Christmas fabric too!
