My kids love Big Hero 6, and they couldn’t wait for it to come out on DVD. My youngest two are really into pretend play superheroes and superhero style movies, so I knew they’d be thrilled with their own copy of the movie along with a Baymax hat. With the snow and ice we had all last week, it was a perfect time for a new fleece hat!
February 24th was our second snow day at home, and Big Hero 6 came out on DVD/Blu-Ray the same day. By the end of the day, most of the ice had melted off the streets, and I had some serious cabin fever. We took a little trip to Walmart to get Big Hero 6 and the Baymax Disney Infinity character.
After they watched the movie for the millionth time this week, I surprised them this weekend with Baymax fleece hats. It was perfect timing because on Friday we had a ton of snow.
Baymax Fleece Hat Tutorial
- 1/2 yd red fleece
- Scraps of purple fleece
- Scraps of white fleece
- Scraps of black knit
- Heat n Bond Lite
- Thread – red, black, purple, and white
- Stabilizer (I use paper towels)
- Grab the pattern HERE
*Use 1/4 inch seam allowance.
1. Lay out your pattern and cut it out. You’ll need 2 hat pieces, 4 ear wing pieces, 2 circle ear pices, 1 white face piece, and 2 eyes.
2. With RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER, sew the two hat pieces together.
3. Fold the hat in half with the seams down the middle. Then, about 1-inch down from the top of the hat, pin it together, and sew a straight line across. Then cut the seam down to about 1/4 inch. This will give a better fit.
4. Next, position the white piece on the front of the hat with the bottom edge of the white piece about 1.5-2 inches above the raw edge. Then, add stabilizer behind it, and sew around it completely.
5. Take 2 of the ear wings and sew the purple circle around the circular area.
6. Take the other 2 ear wings and the scrap of black knit and fuse them to Heat n Bond Lite. Be careful because fleece can melt from the heat of the iron.
7. Take those ear wing pieces and fuse them to the wrong sides of the ear wings with the blue circles already attached.
8. Now sew around the entire edge of each ear wing with a straight stitch. I added extra stitching in sort of a zigzag pattern as well. You do any kind of design or none at all. Then, trim down each ear wing close to the stitching. You might want to cut down the seam edge of the purple circles as well.
9. Next, lightly draw the eye line on the white piece. Then, with the stabilizer still behind it, use a zigzag stitch with black thread to applique it. I use the settings of 2 for width and 0.5 for length. You want a nice thin zigzag not a thick one. It will look nice and professional.
10. Next, cut out the eyes from the fused black knit and place them over the edge of each end of the eye line. Gently, use the iron and fuse them to the hat.
11. Using a straight stitch, sew around each eye.
12. Flip the hat inside out and remove all the stabilizer.
13. With the hat still inside out and fold the raw edge about 1/2 inch inward and sew the hem. Stretch it just slightly as you’re sewing, so the stitches won’t pop when you put it on.
14. If you can, place the hat on and pin the ear wings on where you’d like them. Otherwise, just eyeball it. Then, sew around the circular part of each ear wing to attach it to the hat.
