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!
