Something wicked this way comes!
It’s officially October, which means the kickoff of my favorite holiday ever. The candy, the pumpkin everything, the creative costumes, the decorations…..I love it all! We wanted to help you with your costume making this year, with a super quick and easy pattern for the witches, wizards and warlocks in need of some new headgear. And the best part about this pattern? It’s FREE! Our Halloween treat for you!
Before we get started, here are some things you’ll need:
- Free Witch Hat Pattern Pieces (found in the store HERE)
- 2/3 yard Premium Felt
**I highly recommend the thickest felt you can find, to get the ultimate stiff point and brim on your hat! I found mine on a 72″ wide bolt at JoAnn Fabrics, which left me a lot of extra fabric to make even more hats!
Step 1: With right sides together, fold the cone piece in half — aligning along the long, straight edges. Using 1/4″ seam allowance, sew along long edge.
Step 2: Turn cone piece right side out and set aside.
Step 3: With right sides together, align brim pieces on top of each other.
Step 4: Sew around outer edge, using 1/4″ seam allowance.
Step 5: For cleaner curved edges, use pinking shears trim excess fabric (making sure to not cut through your stitches).
Step 6: Turn brim right sides out. Press. If desired, top stitch along outer brim edge.
Step 7: Fold brim piece to mark quarter points along inner, raw circle.
Step 8: Repeat with cone piece.
Step 9: With right sides together, match the quarter points on your brim and cone pieces.
Step 10: Ease the remainder of the raw edges together, and secure with pins/clips. Sew using 1/4″ seam allowance.
Step 11: Flip the brim down, press if needed, and enjoy your wicked new hat!
Happy Halloween, Pirate Friends!

What pattern is the skirt the model is wearing from?
It’s the circle skirt portion of the Sweetheart dress. 🙂 We have waistband measurements on the sewalong we did for this pattern a couple of years ago. https://www.patternsforpirates.com/sweetheartsal-day3/

Can I ask if that top is available as a pattern? It is gorgeous!!

Hi Kimberly! It’s actually the Hepburn top, that I took and hacked into a spider-webby style neckline.
Thanks so much for this! I’ve just made some brilliant hats for my two year old twins.
