This is our newest free sewing pattern: The Beanie Hat!
This is an extremely easy project for new sewist with some cardigan knit scraps on your closet 😉
The printable PDF sewing pattern is added at the end of this post.
1/8 YARD OF CARDIGAN MEDIUM WEIGHT KNIT FABRIC
Cut the fabric using the pattern at the end of this post.
Fold the hat in half and stitch the curved area on the top of the hat and the side seam with a zig zag stitch or serger.
Now, fold the hat again, matching the inner curves and stitch them together. Press them flat.
Finally, fold the hem of the hat with 1 1/2 inch. Then, use either a zig zag stitch or a twin needle.

SEWING TUTORIAL: Easy Placemats for Beginners
If this is your first time in our blog, remember to check our FREE SEWING PATTERNS page.
On that page you will find our collection of free sewing patterns for women, kids and men.

1 piece of 18” x 13” inner fabric ( in the sample pictures, I used quilting cotton).
1 piece of 18” x 13” outer fabric ( denim used for the sample pictures)
1 piece of 17” x 12” of medium weight batting
GATHER THE FABRICS AND BATTING YOU NEED. PRESS THE FABRICS FLAT.
PLACE THE BATTING ON THE OUTER FABRIC. REMEMBER THAT THE BATTING IS 1” SMALLER THAN THE FABRIC, SO LEAVE 1/2 INCH ON EACH SIDE.
THEN, JOIN THE BATTING AND THE FABRIC TOGETHER. STITCH THEM WITH A REGULAR STITCH LENGTH.
IN THE CASE BELOW I MADE STRAIGHT LINES SEPARATED BY 3/8 INCH IN THE MIDDLE. THE SIDES ARE MEDIUM WAVES.
AFTER THIS, PLACE THE OUTER AND INNER FABRICS TOGETHER, RIGHT SIDES FACING. PIN THE FABRICS TOGETHER.
STITCH FRONT, BOTTOM AND SIDES WITH A 3/8 INCH SEAM ALLOWANCE.
LEAVE A 4” OPENING TO BE ABLE TO TURN THE FABRIC TO THE RIGHT SIDE.
THEN, TURN THE FABRIC TO THE RIGHT SIDE AND PRESS FLAT.
THEN, MAKE DECORATIVE STITCHES ON THE PLACEMAT BY MAKING STRAIGHT LINES SEPARATED BY 3/8 INCH.
