Our family is planning a little Disney trip here soon and we are going to be going to a pirate party. And since we are traveling I don’t want to take costumes….so here is my easy solution. A fold up pirate hat, that won’t take up hardly any room in the suitcases. Perfect.
I used as a starting point a cardboard pirate hat that my kids got at a local pirate restaurant and then changed it for felt. After cutting out the felt hats, I then decided they needed a bit of stitching….but kind of kid-like and wonky to make them look like kid pirate hats.
I made a pattern if you want to make one too. Are you having a pirate party soon? These hats would be an easy and cheap favor.
Here is the pattern.
Don’t you just love little pirates? Especially in polka dot pajamas. They are the best!

Cute hat! You blog showed up twice in my reader (as it did yesterday). I’m wondering if the amperstamp (and sign) is giving you trouble. I know that it does for me sometime. I wonder if you take that out and use the word AND if this would end the problem.
Love your sewing patterns. I made my daughter the Starboard skirt using gold shantaung (polyester) for Christmas. It was so easy and looked really nice on her (she’s 11). How is it that I have no picture of her wearing it!
LOVE it! I think I’m going to make a bunch in pink for my girls 3rd birthday pirate party!
This is too cute!!! I wish I would have thought to make one of these for my little guy when he dress up as a pirate
This is gorgeous! I have a little pirate that would just love it…
Cute as!!!! Yesterday I couldn’t get to this page. Today I can…
Cute! Have so much fun at Disneyland. I hope it’s not as crowded as it was last week.

So, so cute! What a great idea. He’ll be the cutest pirate there!
Oh this are adorable! Love how cute his smile is too. 🙂
Thanks for the pattern. I made these for my kids and they LOVE them!!
I JUST made this…daughter told me grandson had to be dressed as a pirate ONE HOUR before the party started. PHEW. thanks….hat, newspaper sword, and belt all done!
Gracias!!! My daughter will love it!! I’ll put some pink bow on the skull’s head and we’re done!!
Help! I love this and would love to do this for my daughters upcoming 4th birthday party, but I can’t print for some reason. Can someone please send me the pattern??

These were so simple, thank you. I made 15 of them for daycare. 12 for the kids and 3 for the adults (I just cut the slit a tad larger). I was able to get all of the hats and eye patches done in a weekend.
These are so adorable! Can I ask though, did you use stiffened felt? And did it fit on one 9×12 felt piece?

Oh this are adorable! Thanks for the pattern. I will make these for my son… he wants to be pirate 🙂
This is exactly what I needed Thank you so much! I had to make 6 pirate hats for some boys in our city parade. They were for teenagers so I enlarged the image and printed it on 2 sheets of paper for my pattern. But it was absolutely perfect! Cheap, cute and quick! Thanks a million!
This is so cute, I would love to make it but I’m a little confused – is the pattern just for half the hat?
When you place the pattern on the fold of your fabric as shown, cut out, open, and you will have a full hat.
I am making the pirate hat now with few adjustments.Great shape.Easy to follow.
Hi , I have tried to download the pattern and the download options just seem sto give me different software FULL of advertising. How can I get the pattern with some dimensions?
