Oops! I got really busy yesterday with orders and cleaning up the studio and I did not post this pattern! I’m sorry. I also didn’t ever get pictures of the Little Mister wearing his hat… I’ll get on that as soon as possible.

Free Sewing Pattern - Summer Lovin Children's Sun Hat

I’m not a huge fan of sunscreen, but there is no question that children need to be more protected from the sun, so a nice hat seems to be the answer. And hats for girls are pretty easy to find. BUT, I’ve got a little boy now… and I haven’t really been able to find a cute boys hat or a pattern that really worked.

So I made one.

Free Bucket Hat Sewing Pattern from Muse of the Morning

This is the classic bucket hat- probably my favorite type of sun hat. It’s reversible and I can just think of so many variations and embellishments!! Of course Lil’ Miss feels that she needs to match her brother, so even though I made the pattern for Mr. Man, she always wants a matching hat. Which is super cute!

    Thank you for sharing your great little sun hat. It’s a real beauty and great for boys and girls.
    Good on ya Chrissy!!

    • Hi Cynthia! The pattern is still available and seems to be downloading to my computer just fine. If you’re on a tablet or mobile, you might need to switch to a computer. Thank you! I hope you will enjoy the pattern!!

  7. Thanks for sharing and participating in my link party! The hat is great, just in time when I need one for my little Owen 🙂

    • Thank you Daniela! I wish you the best of luck with your link party! It looks like fun!
      Thank you for stopping by!

  8. Love your pattern. Thank you so much. I made the small size for my 3 month old grandson and I should have made it larger. What size is your little guy wearing in the picture. I plan on making another one and thought maybe the large. Appreciate your help. Marion

    • Hi Marion,
      I believe I used the medium and large sizes for my kids. We all tend to have big heads in our family!
      I hope the larger size works out for you! One thing I’ve found with many hat styles, and I think that this is one of them, is that it’s hard to go too big. I hope it works out!
