Satin cap- lined knit Hat

So every time the cold seasons come around , my daughter loses her hairline from wearing knit hats.Well, that is not going to happen this year because I decided to sew satin bonnets into her hats.
This has made a huge difference!

I am sure someone has made knit hats lined with silk or satin bonnets and sells them. However, I am not spending a ridiculous amount of money for those, when I could just line the hats myself.
 
What about you? Do you give this kind of extra protection to your hair or kids' hair? If you have other options, please share below.

  1. Wow, This is impressive. You can even start selling this to other natural hair ladies. I would have loved it to, but I can't use satin bonnet, cos the elastic affects my edges. Not like it makes them so bad, but I have extra full edges, and the satin bonnets takes them from extra full to just normal full.

    1. Thank you !
      I feel like it is so easy to insert satin bonnets in hats that everyone can do it. I do not buy the ones with elastic bands. I understand your frustration because I used to have those with elastic bands

  2. This is a great idea! I usually just put a satin scarf on my head before putting on a hat, but the scarf always ends up sliding off, lol. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I remember seeing a website that sold lined hats a few years back when I was looking for some winter hats. I think your route is better because you can pick the color you want, the type of lining you want, etc. I found some satin sleep caps on etsy and they wanted $35 for one!

    1. $35!? This is exactly why I am making my own. And I am not knocking the sellers because they have to make profit but they sure will not be making it from my pocket. I am a firm believer in "DIY" (Do It Yoursef) if you can.

  4. Every year I say I'm going to do this but never do. It seems more convenient because you don't have to worry about it slipping off or forgetting to put it on.

    Besides, I don't wear hats but I do use plenty of hoods. This is something I need to look into.

    1. Yes Kay, the bonnet will keep your hair moisturized and edges intact.

I was walking to walmart today thinking i was the cutest thing in the world, until i passed by the clothing section, watching the mirrors in horror that my knitted hat had completely slipped off into my hood exposing my bonnet. T_T ..... SO e m b a r a s s i n g !!!!

    1. Oh no! That has happened to me a few times. It is just easier and assuring to see the bonnet into your hat:)
