One of our newest contributors over at Handmade Charlotte inspired this roundup of easy-to-sew headwear for kids. Eri, author of the awesome blog Llevo el invierno, has a tutorial for this super cute turban pattern. I’ve been dying to make it for my girlies ever since it caught my eye.
But there’s more: Grownup-style hats for little guys, recycled t-shirt caps for babies, the list of awesome handmade hats goes on. I’ve rounded up a few of my favs for you. Some of these patterns are free, some are for purchase, but all of them are fun to make—kiddoes will L.O.V.E wearing them, and they’ll keep their little noggins warm!
