A Toddler Boy's Wardrobe

Simple Cap

Cut a piece of white linen (fine or medium weight) 21" x 9". Hem the two long edges with as narrow a hem as you can manage. Join the two short edges together to form a tube roughly 8½" tall and 10" across, sew this seam with a small running/back stitch and then neatly flat-fell it. Gather up one end of the tube in your hand and tie a 12" length of black silk ribbon around it in a bow, about 1" from the end. Fold the other end of the tube up to form a cuff. Try the hat on your boy and fold the cuff up a few more times if the cap seems too large. Small boys are often depicted bare-headed, so it's okay if you cannot keep a hat on him. Other possibilities are child-size versions of a Monmouth cap, a Dutch sailor's knitted cap, or a felt hat, cocked or uncocked.
