Sew your very own beanie, or even create one for a friend! Use your own choice of fabric to show off your style, and choose a texture suitable for you. If you're looking to create a super warm cuddly beanie, polar fleece is a great choice. That is what we have used to create our beanie.

This project is perfect for beginners and any sewist up to an advanced level.

Materials needed:

  • Polar Fleece fabric
  • Matching thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Scissors
  • Overlocker (optional)

Don't have an overlocker? Use a built-in zig zag stitch on your machine to finish off the edges to stop the fabric from fraying.
