Introducing the Sunny Hat

We're so pleased to announce our latest pattern - the Sunny Hat!  We know how important sun protection is for families who enjoy spending time outside, so we have created a hat that is simple to sew, can be made from a small amount of fabric, and is available in a wide range of sizes.  

In order to make this pattern available to as many people as possible, we're offering it to you FREE of charge!

Here at Twig + Tale, we strive to design thoughtfully-considered patterns that are simple and classic.  We want to help you make garments and accessories that are functional, fit well, and look great - the sort of pieces that you will reach for time and time again.  

A good sunhat is essential gear for families who love to spend their days outside.  To meet this need, we have created the Sunny Hat, a simple sunhat with a generous brim that provides great coverage and protection from the sun, in a wide range of sizes from preemie baby to adult large.  

The Sunny Hat is quick and easy to make, so you can whip up a sunhat when needed (children's heads are always growing, and hats have a tendency to wander).  It is beautifully finished and lined, making it fully reversible for two hats in one.  

The unique panelled design of the hat means that it can be made with small cuts of fabric, making it a perfect scrap buster.  Sew it in lightweight cotton or linen for a lightweight, breathable summer hat.   

The design of the hat lends itself so well to a petal shape that we couldn't resist creating the Sunny Hat Flower Add-On.  With a scalloped edge and graceful shape, the flower hat has all of the sun-shielding practicality of the Sunny Hat, with a bit of extra charm and whimsy.    

At Twig + Tale, we aim to create sewing patterns that are accessible for all levels of sewists.  The Sunny Hat pattern is no exception, offering a clear, step-by-step tutorial with photos and videos for every step.  If you've never sewn a hat before, this is a great place to start - with clear instructions and a supportive online community, you'll be surprised by what you can create!  

We hope you enjoy sewing the Sunny Hat for your loved ones, and that these hats will accompany you on many sunny day adventures.  


If you're new to Twig + Tale, we'd like to give you a warm welcome!  We have a lovely and supportive sewing community at Twig + Tale Chat - please feel free to pop in to ask questions, look for inspiration, or share photos of your makes.  You can also find us on Instagram.
