Reversible Bucket Hats

I guess bucket hats have made a come back! I remember wearing them while growing up in the 90s. So when I was deciding what to make for this month's Summer Craft Blog Hop, my mind immediately went to bucket hats! At first, I thought about crocheting a granny square bucket hat, but then I decided to give my hands a rest and sew some instead. I have a bunch of fabric from when I was making masks, so I decided to use some of those fun fabrics to make bucket hats for my kiddos.

I downloaded, printed, and cut out the pattern pieces for the Reversible Bucket Hat Pattern by Sweet Red Poppy.

For the first hat, I used two Spider-Man fabrics. I liked using fabrics that are similar in color because when you topstitch the lines on the brim, it'll be great it the thread coordinates well with both fabrics.

I cut out the brim, middle, and top of the hat in the Spider-Man fabrics.

After I cut out all the necessary pieces in the Spider-Man fabric, I cut out the interfacing pieces. I used lite interfacing. As you can see, I was watching the Reversible Bucket Hat Video while creating the hat. 

When you iron the interfacing onto the brim pieces, make sure you're ironing with the bumpy/shiny side down!

I stitched the sides together. 

I pressed the seams open with my mini iron. I went ahead did the same for the middle pieces.

I placed the two Brim pieces together with right sides together, and sewed around the outside edge.

Then I flipped the pieces with right sides out, and stitched all around the brim. This was my favorite part, but my lines aren't that great.

I pinned the middle piece to the top for each of the fabrics. 

 and sewed them together.

Next, I pinned and sewed on the brim to one of the top and middle pieces.

Then I pinned and sewed on the other middle and top piece to the brim leaving about 2 inches unsewn.

Finally, I turned the hat right side out and topstitched the 2 inch hole closed. Then the hat was all done!

My son tried on his new hat, and he loved it. So then I made a couple hats for my daughter.

  1. Your bucket hats are too cute, T'onna! Once again, your creativity amazes me! Is there anything you can't make? Lol!

  2. These are too cute! What a great way to use up your covid fabric. This post makes me wish my now 11 year old was still little lol! Pinned!

    1. Thanks!! Your 11 year old might want one. My daughter turns 11 in August, and she wanted a hat after seeing her brother's Spider-Man hat. I made the Wonder Woman and LOL Girls/Cats hats for her.

  3. Oh, how I love bucket hats!! They are such a fun, yet classic, pattern. It's been a while since I did some sewing and I have a pattern. You have definitely inspired me! pinning -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

    1. Thanks for pinning! I'm definitely going to have to make a couple bucket hats for myself.

  4. How cute and super on-trend right now; love that they're reversible!


  5. Love the pattern and the fabrics you used--I need to make a couple of these while having my chemo treatments. My friend did make me a Spiderman surgical cap that I wear out at times. Thanks, T'onna!

    1. The pattern was really easy to follow, especially since there's also a video tutorial. I just followed the video (I'm a visual learner). You can use all kinds of fun fabrics for these hats! I plan to make a few more for my kids, and I think my husband wants one. He used to wear bucket hats when he was a teen, and I had a couple as well. But yeah, you should definitely give this pattern/tutorial a try and make some fabulous and fun bucket hats. I hope you get well soon.

  6. The perfect hat! It has great coverage and of course STYLE! Your tutorial was so detailed, I may have the confidence needed to give it a try. You know your son's friends are going to be begging for a hat!

  7. Your bucket hats are fab! My kids would all have loved a superhero themed hat when they were small (probably still like one now to be honest!) I like the way they can fold up so small for traveling.
