Friday Favourites - Sun Hat Patterns

The heatwave we have endured this week in Melbourne has brought to my attention the lack of sun hats we have in this house. A quick search around the internet produced an overwhelming amount of patterns, here are some of my favourites.

fedora sewyougirl

Local gal Nikki from You Sew Girl has this amazing Fedora pattern that can be made with a short brim or wide brim.

tulip petal hat

This cute as a button tulip petal sun hat is perfect for bubs. Find the pattern and fantastic tutorial here by Lindsay Wilkes from The Cottage Mama.

straw hat

I adore this wide brimmed straw hat by Bonnie Potter. I think I need to aquire some raffia and try this one out.


There aren't many sun hat patterns out there for guys (ahem! hat designers out there take note!) This Mens sun hat by AngelLea Designs is a great simple pattern.


This free pattern for a Reversible bucket hat by Oliver & S is a great simple pattern that can be sewn up in no time at all.

indiana jones hat

What little boy wouldn't want this Indiana Jones hat by LilDudesAndDarlins. In fact I think my husband would love one of these!
