What you will Need: How to make a simple reversible baby bonnet

  • 9″ x 14″ piece of main fabric
  • 9″ x 14″ piece of lining fabric
  • 1 Yd 7/8″ ribbon
  • 4″ of 5/8″ elastic
  • Standard Sewing supplies

Step 1: Cut Your Fabrics and Ribbon:

Cut your fabrics so that they measure 9″ x 14″ each. Cut the ribbon so that there are two 18″ pieces

Step 2: Stitch the fabrics and ribbon:

Lay your fabrics right sides together so that they are positioned longways on your work surface. Measure up 1/2″ from the bottom and pin your ribbon between the two layers. Pin the two fabrics together. Stitch from the top side down 1/4″ and backstitch using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Skip down 7/8″ and begin sewing again to the end of the side around the bottom and up the other side until you are 1 1/8″ from the end and backstitch. Skip to the last 1/4″ and sew to the end and along the top. This will leave a gap in the side seams for the casing. Sew the top closed leaving an opening for turning.

Step 3: Turn the fabrics and Press

Turn the fabrics right sides out and sew the opening closed using ladder stitch. I like using that Purple Thing for turning because it really helps to poke out those corners for me. But if you don’t have that Purple Thing a knitting needle or chopstick will also work. Press. Sew a straight line across the length of the fabric just beneath the opening you created on the sides of the fabric. This creates a casing for the elastic.

Step 4: Add the elastic

Using a safety pin thread your elastic through the opening you left in the side so that it goes in one side and comes out the other. Pull the elastic tight and stitch the ends together using zig zag stitch. The elastic will slide into the casing you have created. The back of the bonnet will form a circle. You have now completed your reversible baby bonnet. How cute!
