Leading your troop just got easier.

Easy Fleece Hat




One seam is all it takes to make a cozy winter hat from fleece. Fun and easy for Girl Scouts to make and donate a bunch for a community service project and one for themselves. Girls can also make a matching hat for their doll.

You need:

  • 1/2 Yard of Fleece (will make 2 hats)
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Needle and Thread or Sewing Machine

Fold in half with right sides together. Stitch along the short ends to make a tube that will fit over your head. Leave the last 4″ unstitched. This will become part of your fringe. Cut 4″ slits every 3/4″ along this end. Turn right-side out.

Cut a piece of scrap to 1″ x 8″. Gather fringes and tie tightly with scrap piece. Roll bottom up twice to make band.
