Felt Kitty Hat

This is quick and easy.

You'll need:

Felt -- One sheet will do fine.
Sewing Supplies -- Needle, thread (you might consider contrasting thread), scissors.

Optional but encouraged: Pink felt for the ears. I didn't use it, and I wish I did.

Measure around your doll's head, divide by two and add one. This is the width measurement of what we're making.

Measure from the crown of your doll's head down to where the hat should fall. Add two. This is the length.

Cut two squares of felt that are as wide as the first measurement and as long as the second measurement. I had good luck with two squares seven inches by six inches.

Either cut two triangles of pink felt or go ahead and embroider two triangles that match up with two adjacent corners of your hat. This makes the inner ear. Honestly? I made mine way too small, so you go hog wild.

Place one square on top of the other, lining up the edges. Stitch the squares up, starting on a corner that doesn't have an ear. Stitch to one ear, to the other ear, then back down. Keep the bottom open.

Felt seems to like it when you use the blanket stitch. It holds together well.

You should wind up with this:

Turn the bottom edge up, like a cuff.

Place on a doll.

The two corners make the 'ears'. If you're really on top of your game, you can take some matching thread and stitch the ears closed.
