Materials

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Cut the fleece into a rectangle that measures about 13 inches high by the width of your child's head plus 1 inch.

  2. Step 2

    Right sides together, fold the fleece in half, aligning the two 13-inch edges. Glue along the inside of these edges, stopping about 4 inches from one end. Dry thoroughly.

  3. Step 3

    Just below the glue area, snip in (perpendicular to the seam) about 1/2 inch deep.

  4. Step 4

    Turn the hat right side out. Overlap the two unglued edges. Glue in place. Let dry.

  5. Step 5

    Roll up the hat from the bottom (about three times) to create a rolled cuff.

  6. Step 6

    Print and cut out the hat template of your kid's favorite character.

  7. Step 7

    Trace the face pieces and cut them from the felt. For tiny shapes, if it's easier for you, draw them onto the hat later with the fine-tip markers or fabric paints.

  8. Step 8

    When the hat is dry, place the seam at the back and glue the character face pieces onto the area above the rolled cuff.

  9. Step 9

    Cut a short, narrow strip from the fleece. Gather the top of the hat like a ponytail, and use the strip to tie it tight. Knot. Snip ends close to the knot.

  10. Step 10

    Fringe the top of the hat above the tie.
