For many of us, the chill of winter is just around the corner and it’s time to get ready with some fun projects to take advantage of the warmth of Cuddle® fabrics. For Sew Together Tuesday this week, our national educator Teresa Coates will be showing out to make a Trapper Hat. You might know it as an Elmer Fudd hat or a hunter’s hat, but those big fluffy ear flaps are instantly recognizable!
The Trapper Hat patter is from Made by Me patterns and comes in sizes to fit the whole family, ranging from newborn to an adult large. It is available as a PDF from MadeByMePatterns.com
Teresa will show how to use your favorite Cuddle® print for the outside of your hat and both Luxe Cuddle® Sherpa and Luxe Cuddle® Dazzle. Choose your favorite and personalize hats for you and your loved ones. You won’t believe how simple they really are!
