Project Instructions

  • 1
    Measure around the child’'s head. With the sewing scissors, cut two Yellow pieces of felt and two Tangerine pieces of felt 9" high and long enough that when they are glued together it equals the circumference of the child’'s head. Glue the pieces together, alternating colors. You should now have a felt tube.
  • 2
    Use the sewing scissors to cut a Neon Green felt circle that equals the circumference of the top of the tube, plus ½". Cut ½" slits all around the outside edge. Glue these cut slits into the top of the tube to create the top of the hat.
  • 3
    Using the head measurement again, make a circle on the Bristol paper. Make another circle 2" outside the first circle, making a ring. Cut out the ring using regular scissors. Cover the top and bottom of the ring by gluing the Neon Green felt over the ring. Cut off the excess felt on the outside of the ring right at the end of the Bristol paper. Cut out the excess felt from the inside of the ring, leaving ½".

    Cut slits into the ½" part with the regular scissors and glue the slits up into the bottom of the hat.
