Learn how to make a bucket hat with a free sewing pattern in baby, child, and adult sizes. This beginner sewing project is great for summer!
Summer is here, and I love spending time outdoors. We love to hike, garden, and swim so having a hat to keep our face shaded and protected from the sun is so important.
I started designing this hat as a bucket hat, but I widened the brim for more sun coverage. It’s almost more of a sun hat, but I’m still calling it a bucket hat.

Cut out all the pattern pieces as instructed in the pattern. From the outer fabric you’ll need 1 crown, 2 sides, and 4 brims.
From the lining you’ll need 1 crown and 2 sides. From the interfacing you’ll need 1 crown, 2 sides, and 4 brims.
Fuse the interfacing pieces to all the wrong side of the outer fabric pieces. Match up the short sides of the outer fabric sides with right sides together.
Match up the shorts ides of the lining fabric sides with right sides together. Sew each side and back stitch when you start and when you stop.
