Easy Cotton Beanie

There is still time to make hats and bags for the current craft hope project that benefits kids battling cancer.

This post is how to make a beanie really quick and easy.

I cut out a rectangle of fabric that measured twelve inches tall by eighteen and one half inches long.

I folded the bottom up twice and sewed straight across to make a brim.
Next I folded in half with pattern together and sewed up the side, leaving the top untouched.

I turned the fabric back right side out. I positioned the side seam to be in the back and accordion folded the top a couple inches down. 

I put a pin through the folds and prepared a needle for hand sewing.
I sewed straight through the folds multiple times to make it stay tight.

Last I used pinking shears to cut strips down from the top, careful not to cut where I sewed down the side.

This would also be great to do with fleece.
