nfl team fleece fabric hat

Show off your team spirit (and keep your head warm during playoffs) with your own NFL Team Fleece Fabric Hat!
Step 1

Project Note: This pattern is for a medium-sized woman’s head. You may want to test this pattern with scrap fabric to see if you need to adjust its size.

First, make a couple of cute yarn braids. Cut 60 lengths of yarn, each measuring 30" long. Divide these lengths into two piles, making sure their ends are lined up evenly.

Step 2
Next, cut four 10" lengths of the same yarn.
Step 3
Wrap one 10" length of yarn around the end of one pile of 30" lengths, and tie it tightly. Tape this tied end to your working surface.
Step 4

Divide the 30" strands of yarn into three equal sections and braid them until you’re about 5" from the end. Wrap another piece of 10" yarn around the end; then knot it to secure the braid. Trim the ends so they’re even.

Step 5

Repeat Steps 3-4 to make a second braid. Set both braids aside until Step 15.

Step 6
We have a pattern that’ll make this hat even easier! Click here to download it; then print it out and cut out the pattern piece. 
Step 7
Fold your fleece fabric in half, positioning the logo so it’s in the center of the fold. Place the pattern onto the fabric with its dotted line on the fold. Make sure the pattern covers the logo so that, once cut out and unfolded, it will be right in the center of your hat. Pin and cut out the pattern shape from your fabric. Now, move the pattern to a new area on your fabric, line it up with the fold and logo as you did before, and pin and cut again to make the hat’s second piece.
Step 8
Fold one hat piece in half, with its right sides together. Stitch the ‘V’ shape together using a small seam allowance. Repeat to stitch the ‘V’ shape on the second hat piece in the same way. Trim and clip the seam allowances on both pieces.
Step 9

Pin the front and back hat pieces to each other with their right sides together. Stitch them together around their sides, using a small seam allowance. Leave the head opening unstitched. Trim and clip your seams; then turn the hat right-side out.

TIP: Take a minute to try on your hat. If it’s too large, now’s the perfect time to adjust your sizing by sewing the seams a little tighter.

Step 10
Now, make the band for your hat. Measure around your head, right around your eyebrows. Cut a rectangle of fabric that is this measurement, plus one inch in length, and 4" wide.
Step 11
Line up the rectangle’s short ends (with right sides facing each other) and sew them together using a ½" seam allowance. Trim the seam.
Step 12
Matching right sides together, pin and sew this band to your hat. As you work, make sure to line up the band’s seam with the center back of the hat.
Step 13
Fold the band down; then fold the edge over ½" and line it up with the seam inside the hat. Hand sew the folded edge of the band to the inside seam.
Step 14
Fold the band back up. Tack the band to the hat’s side seams to keep it in place.
Step 15
Take one of your yarn braids and sew it to the inside of the hat at the seam. Make sure the top of the braid is far enough above the band so it’s hidden. Do the same to attach the second braid to the other side of the hat.
Step 16
Stuff each horn with a little fiberfill.
