Girls and boys alike love the casual comfort of a cute bucket hat! Even big kids can get in the fun with this PDF pattern, which includes two child sizes in addition to the hat for 18-inch dolls. Child size small fits a head circumference up to approximately 20 inches, while the medium size is designed for up to 21 ½ inches.

This hat is fully lined with lots of topstitching detail. Fusible interfacing adds to its structure, and side eyelets give it a bit of character while also allowing for the addition of an optional cord under the chin. Perfect for your next hike, fishing trip or beach volleyball game!

This hat was designed as part of the Summer Camp Collection by Matilda’s Closet, which also includes the Roll-Up Capris, Mock Button-Front Shirt and Drop-Waisted Shortalls. Add the coordinating Convertible Bunk Bed pattern by AptOne8 and your little friend will be all set for summer camp!

    Easy to sew, I added a contrasting fabric band & bow around the brim.

    I made a reversible bucket hat without the rows of topstitching on the brim and without the ties. The dark side is swimsuit lycra fused to woven interfacing.
