  • Cut a long strip of fleece, tall enough to cover the ears from top to bottom.  This may vary for kids and adults.  I rough cut a 4 inch wide strip, then later trimmed inch or two off to remove the excess from the top.
  • Turn hat inside out and pin the strip along the inside of the hat.
  • When pinning, be sure liner does not hang out of the bottom of the hat.  I left a thin strip of hat as I pinned so it would not show.
  • Where the ends come together, let them overlap a bit and trim away any excess fleece.
  • With needle and matching thread, hand sew liner to hat using a simple whip stitch.
  • When sewing, take care to only sew liner into the inside loops of yarn inside the hat.  Otherwise your sewing will show in the outside when wearing.
  • Sew top edge of the liner, bottom edge of the liner, and the area where the fleece meets itself and overlaps.
