on the wild side: tiger hats

Walking on the wild side?
It is starting to get cold in the morning,
 Miss C. needed something to keep her warm while walking to school.
So I made her a tiger hat.

Of course I also made one for her doll!

I used the simplicity pattern 1514.
It is fast and easy, but the tiger fabric is a pain to work with, it makes a mess during cutting,
it is slippery during stitching....I found it is best to use rotary cutter instead of scissors,
and sew the fur on top and the fleece on the bottom.
(it is especially important for the doll version where the seams are 1/4")

It comes with pockets to keep fingers toasty,
and paw prints, can it get any better?!

While the big dolls are able to have the same tiger hat,
(it is part of the pattern)
Camille is a lot smaller, so I made her a simple beanie hat,
with a rectangle of fur, and a fur yo-yo.

Ready to come with us for a walk on the wild side?

Happy sewing!


  1. The hats are such fun and miss c looks thrilled to be wearing hers xx

  2. My daughters were with me when I was going through the links at the link party...they literally started screaming when they saw your post. Ummm...I'm deaf now and they really like your cute hats for both your daughter and the doll. We are featuring them on all my social media sites on Monday! Happy Halloween! Have a great weekend.

Over the years I am sure you have noticed my interest in 🐰, so it will no surprise that I made a few more. This little one is my latest, so...
