A bucket style sunhat.


The Sandcastle Bucket sewing pattern that can be made from woven or knit fabrics and is suitable for beginners. It has a wide brim to offer good sun protection.

This pattern can also be used to create a rain hat!

If you head on over to my blog you will find a tutorial for adding a safety chin strap.

NOTE: If you are the EU you will not be able to download the pattern here as the website shop is only for customers outside the EU. You can also find the pattern and instructions in the ‘files’ section of the facebook group.

    This pattern is fantastic! We were in need of a new bucket hat for my son and this was perfect. I am an inexperienced and rely heavily on instructions and these told me everything I need to know. If you don’t mind a brim that is a bit floppy, you can totally avoid the interface, I did! However next plan is to make one using interface so I can compare. Thanks for providing a great free pattern that has helped build my confidence and convinced me that next time I might actually buy a pattern.

    This was a terrific rainy afternoon project, and I loved making it. The pattern was easy to print and assemble, and the instructions were excellent. I used an old pair of worn out trousers and a bit of leftover fabric, and I put some iron on interfacing on the trouser material because it was a bit floppy. The top stitching made the brim nice and firm. I’m really thinking of making another using waterproof material because it would also make a great rain hat. It’s a shame I can’t seem to upload a photo!

      Hi Anne, there are two files – make sure you have downloaded both. One file is the pattern and the other is the instructions.
