Step 2

Start by cutting out your hat piece from your red felt to be 6 1/2" tall and 7" wide at the base with a slight outward curve to each side. Next, from your green felt, cut both a 3" circle and your base piece. Your base should be about 4" wide at the top, 9" wide at the bottom and 5 1/2" tall.

Step 3

Sew up the side of your green felt. Next, pin your circle to the bottom and sew that to the base. Turn your base right side out and fill it with a handful of dry lentils for stability and then fill the rest with pillow stuffing.

Sew your red piece into a hat shape. We used a fun embroidery stitch for added detail. Using a hot glue gun, glue this piece onto your base.
