This Baby Dew Rag pattern and tutorial website was inspired by Proverbs 31:13, which is a Bible verse describing some of the qualities of a virtuous woman.

"She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands."

Baby Dew Rag


A dew rag is a hat. There are a few different spellings for dew rag. It may be "dew" rag if you consider it will absorb the sweat on your brow. It may be "do" rag if you consider that when your hair "do" isn't cooperating, you can use a do rag to cover it. It may also be spelled "doo" rag, or "du" rag. A dew rag is also sometimes known as a skull cap or a wavecap. They are very popular among chemo-therapy patients, athletes, motorcycle riders and those with long hair who wish to keep it out of their face. Dew rags are also used many times in place of a hair net or to keep cornrows, waves or other hair styles from being disturbed during sleep.

Cutting the Fabric for the
Baby Dew Rag

Tip:  If you have a pattern that you use often, try making your pattern pieces out of a strong quality paper towel. The paper towel is easily pinned through onto your fabric and doesn't rip like paper does when pinned through repeatedly for multiple uses. You may also want to glue your paper pattern sheets onto lightweight cardboard, then cut out the pieces. Place the pattern pieces on your fabric and trace around them with a fabric marking pen.

This pattern allows for ¼ inch seams. The seam allowance is already figured into the pattern, so there is no need to adjust or add any seam allowance to it. Lay out your pattern with the arrows on the pattern pieces in line with the straight grain of fabric. You will be cutting one Top/Tail piece. You will be cutting two side pieces, and one should be the reverse of the other, so when you lay out your two layers of fabric for the side pieces, they should be with either the right sides of the fabric facing one another or the wrong sides of the fabric facing one another.

Cut out the pattern along the solid outside lines.

Clip ½ inch along the dotted line from the edge of the fabric to the dot labeled C.

Sewing the Baby Dew Rag

If you would like to add an appliqué to your baby dew rag, now is the best time. You can also cross stitch a design with waste canvas or machine embroider a design on the tail. Be sure that you leave ample room (½ inch all around) for hemming the tail. On the pattern download there is a cross and a dove which you can choose from or use your own design. A contrasting fabric will show off your appliqué nicely. The baby dew rag pictured doesn't have an appliqué since a teddy bear printed on the fabric landed nicely in the center of the tail.

Side Seam (Seam AB):  Note:  You may find it easiest to stitch with the concave edge (top/tail piece) on top so plan ahead when pinning so that your pins are easier to remove when stitching. With right sides together, pin one side piece to the top/tail piece from point A to point B easing in the fullness around the curve.

Stitch together with a ¼ inch seam, locking the stitching at both ends.  Repeat with the other side.

Zig-zag or overcast the edges of the seams.

Side/Back Hem:  Turn the fabric under ¼ inch from C to D turning seam AB toward the side piece and finger press (crease the fold with your fingernail).

Turn under ¼ inch again and pin.

Notice that the seam line doesn't line up perfectly on the wrong side when you turn it under.

Stitch from C to D on each side of the tail, locking the stitching at the beginning and end.

Tail Hem:  Fold fabric under and press along fold line at the tip of the tail.

Fold under ¼ inch from tip of tail to point E on each side and press. Fold under ¼ inch again from tip of tail to point E on each side and press.

This creates a nice finished tip on the tail. Turn the fabric under 1/4 inch from point E on one side of the tail to point C and press. Notice that the entire side of the hat is flipped over.

Turn under again and press.

Now flip the side of the hat back over and pin.

Note: This will create a pleat on each side of the tail and will also enclose any raw edges of material where you clipped from the edge of the fabric to point C. Repeat on the other side. Do yourself a HUGE favor now and hand baste the hem.

 This will save your hands from getting stabbed with pins while you're trying to maneuver the turns under your sewing machine needle. Stitch your hem close to the edge from point C on one side of the tail all the way around to point C on the other side, locking the stitching on both ends. The photo below shows the stitching line is indicated in red.

The photo below shows the right side of the fabric after the tail hem is stitched.

Band and Ties:  Turn under ¼ inch on the two short ends of the band and ties piece and press. Turn under ¼ inch on one long edge of the band and ties piece and press.

Fold the band and ties piece of fabric in half (long ways) to find the center and mark it.

Pin right side of band and ties piece to wrong side of hat, matching the center of the band and ties piece to point F on the top/tail piece and turning seams AB to the side piece.

Stitch a ¼ inch seam from point D on one side to point D on the other side, locking the stitching at both ends.

Turn under ¼ inch on the remaining edges of the band and ties piece and press.

Fold the band and ties piece over the seam and pin.

Top stitch from one end of the band and ties to the other, close to the edge.
