Cat in the Hat Hats

My daughter and I sewed these hats together for a class Dr. Seuss party. We made one for each child in the classroom and the instructions are fairly simple!

To start, we cut 3 white and 2 red 22"x 3" felt strips for each hat. We also cut a 7" round piece of red felt for the top of each hat.  Begin by putting a white strip lined up with a red strip and straight stitch together with a 1/2" seam. Open sewn strips facing right side up and lay a white strip at the top of the sewn red strip. straight stitch again. Repeat process until the last white strip is sewn. Then fold in half, right sides together, line up each seam and pin. Straight stitch with a 1/2" seam. Turn it right side in and line the 7" red felt round at the top. Straight stitch around and then turn right side out.
The Finished Product!
