"Oh Deer" Baby Reindeer Hat!

I am so excited to share this one with you all!

I love giving away my patterns to all you crafty mommas!

Last week this was featured as a part of Liz's 12 Crafty Day's of Christmas Series at her wonderful blog, "Love Grows Wild" you should check her blog out!

So here is my"Oh Deer" Little Baby Reindeer Pattern.   

Go here to download the free pattern pieces (includes sizes NB-9 Months and 10-18 Months)

When printing each pattern, make sure your printer is set to Scale to Fit. :)

If you want to make it bigger to accommodation a child or adult, just increase the pattern pieces by making the main hat piece as wide as half of the circumference of the head.

1. Cut out all pieces as directed.

You should have the following:

  2 Hat Body Pieces.

4 ear pieces
(in a color matching the hat)

4 Horns (white or light brown)

 Place ear pieces with the fronts facing each other.

Hand stitch with 1/8" seam allowance. Turn inside out.

Lay the top hat piece off the bottom (with the front facing you) in front of you.


Pin your ears on upside down on the top of the front piece.  

Sew your antlers together with a 1/8 seam allowance. Turn inside out and stuff.

As you did with the ears, pin the antlers unside down on the front of the hat.

Fold up where each the Hat Pattern Piece says "fold up." Do with both hat pieces.

Flip the hat piece without the ears and antlers, to be on top. You want both front sides facing each other.

 Make sure the folds coordinates on both sides. Adjust if needed.

Sew together with a 1/8 seam allowance.

For added "upright support" I stitched the antlers on to the hat with a 1/8" seam allowance.

Otherwise they could be too floppy! :)


Now let your "DEER" little one model it!

Doesn't that make you just want to say "Merry Christmas!"

 Hope you give it a try! It really is adorable.


  1. I'm so glad you shared this at Love Grows Wild! I just love it! Merry Christmas to you and your adorable little one : )
