Barbie Summer Hat or Beach Hat -Free Sewing Pattern

Barbie says it's summertime and every girl needs a few hats to help protect her delicate skin from the harmful rays of the sun. But more importantly (in Barbie's world) she says hats can be super cute too:@) Use any cotton fabric, in any design or color, maybe make a few to match different outfits. Now, life is funny folks, and things don't always turn out to match our vision... I started with a great bucket hat pattern for humans from Hello Sewing, and thanks to my marginal sewing skills it turned into a beach hat for a Barbie doll. ~But~ in the end, I did end up with a hat, and I do like the look of it. I'm also pleased with myself that I didn't give up on the project and actually completed this itty-bitty hat! 

While I'll share the actual pattern I used for this hat,
what I really suggest is that you stop by Hello Sewing,
Very helpful indeed!
And if you're feeling extra creative...
Maybe make matching hats for your girl and her doll,
you'll be a rock star๐Ÿ˜Ž

✂The pattern:
I signed up for the free download pattern,
 and reduced it to 28%.

What I did differently:
My hat is not reversible,
 and I chose to cut the outer brim with pinking shears so it didn't need a hem.
I did use a sewing machine, 
hand stitching is certainly an option for this small hat.

Make something just for fun -if you're up to the challenge๐Ÿ˜‰
And have a happy day!

I'm Joining:


  1. Always need hats, thanks for sharing the pattern and it's very cute!

  2. Oh I saw her hat pattern and how clever of you to make a miniature version. Very cute and I love the fabric!
