It is one of my nephew's birthday today! He turns 2!
He likes to wear hats. A lot. A few months ago, I saw a picture of him wearing on of his dad's scrub caps. That's when I decided he needed one of his own!
(The pants are from Made by Rae's pattern Big Butt Baby Pants using the 2T size)
I have a pattern for adult scrup caps, as I made his dad one for Christmas (little boy's cap is from the leftover fabric!). So, I asked my sister-in-law to measure little boy's head. I just kind of winged it after that... I tried to follow the pattern for the crown but I didn't trust myself cutting out the top of the hat, so I just pinned the crown to a square of fabric and hoped for the best as I sewed around it :)
Here's the back... if you read all the way to the bottom of the post, I'll show you how I finish off ties made from bias tape :)
Semi-Tutorial ~ Finishing off Bias Tape Ties/Straps
For the scrub cap, I started on one end of a tie, sewed toward the cap, sewed the bias tape onto the cap, and then finished at the other end of a tie... all one continuous stitch. It's the same for attaching the straps to a pillowcase dress!
