Recycled T-Shirt Baby Hat

June 23rd, 2011 by zoe 20 Comments

This sweet little baby hat makes a charming gift and can be stitched from simple stuff found around the house. All you need are a couple of old t-shirts, some dental floss, straight pins, a needle and an hour of time to spare. This Alabama Stitch Book inspired cap fits 4 to 18 months.

Click pattern, save to file, print, and start stitching to make your own hand sewn baby cap.

      Thank You! I have found so much inspiration from Natalie Chanin’s books – I just love hand stitching t-shirt jersey.
      Fun stuff!

    reminds me of something from the middle ages. Might be a good thing to have if one is taking an infant to ren-faires or SCA events.
    Just my random 2 cents worth

    Hi Zoe, I love the little hats you made from T-Shirts. The hat would be perfect for my granddaughter. She was born at 29 wks and just celebrated her 1st b-day in Feb. She is thriving and has met all development milestones,but because she was born so early, she is severely hearing impaired in both ears. Would you consider letting me purchase a few hats from you? These hats would be wonderful to help with her hearing aids. As you can imagine, she always wants to pull the aids out. Thanks much for considering my request.

    Kindest Regards,

    I love it when I happen upon a craft that has been floating around for quite some time. What a find! I LOVE these caps. I love it when a repurposed item turns into such a useful and lovely project! I’ll be linking on WFA’s Facebook page. Thanks for sharing :)
