Just in time for the cooler weather coming on, these cozy pixie & pilot caps are the perfect thing to keep your little ones ears nice and toasty!
Although this is not a new pattern release, I do have a NEW video tutorial to go along with it. I’m super excited to share it with you.
These whimsical, but most importantly functional pixie and pilot caps were designed to fit snug around the face and tie comfortably under the chin.
A cap for all seasons
Spring & Summer: For those days when the little ones just need a light covering, a cap made with cotton knit is the perfect thing.
Fall & Winter: An upcycled sweater or a cozy piece of fleece, are the perfect thing to make a pixie or pilot cap out of.
If you would like the look of a hand knit hat for your child but you don’t knit, but you DO sew, this pixie & pilot cap pattern works great. Use the bottom cuff of a sweater and cut it out with the method I show in my pattern tutorial and it will hug around your child’s face just like you had knit it by hand.
These make really fun baby gifts!
Where do you get the pilot & pixie cap pattern?
The pattern includes two different styles of caps: A functional pilot cap and a fun whimsy pixie cap.
Five different sizes from Newborn to a Child Size Small.
The cap uses very little fabric or sweater material. This one was made from an upcycled cotton sweater and the lining from an upcycled fleece jacket.
Lining the cap will make the cap REVERSIBLE and it’s so easy to do!
This is another opportunity to use some of your sweaters from your stash, if you have one.
If you are like me, once you start making things from upcycled sweaters, collecting second hand sweaters becomes an addiction.
Pilot & Pixie Caps Soft and Cozy Binding
Using the method I show, in a previous post, to bind the hat with fleece, makes the hat so cozy around the face and ties comfortably under the chin.
Christmas is just around the corner. So dig into your sweater stash, or purchase a small amount of fleece and get sewing! *******Holiday sales are coming up and fleece can usually be found at a really good price this time of year.
So grab your pattern and get sewing.
Here is the video tutorial that will walk you through the process, step by step!
Have fun sewing!
