How to make a birthday hat
This birthday hat can go together quickly and be embellished any way you like to make it special for your child. Some hand stitched details would also be lovely!
I don’t have a birthday hat template but it really is an easy shape. Cut the below shape out of a sheet of felt, making it as big as possible. Iron interfacing to one side of the felt.
Embellish the outside by sewing on felt details.
Cut 4 strips of tulle about 4 inches wide in different lengths. The longest was about 36 inches. Fold the felt right sides together and place the tulle in the middle with the end sticking out of the top. Sew as close to the edge as possible. Be careful to only catch the end of the tulle in the seam.
Sew a piece of elastic string to the inside at each side. Turn right side out and there you go!
