Kids Snowman Hat - DIY gift / sewing project


A cutie hat that is perfect for all winter long after the Christmas Season has ended. I bet you have most of the supplies on hand too except the white hat so it's a great inexpensive gift too!


DIY snowman hat
Supplies:
White knit hat (I used a one size fits all from walmart for $1.50)
orange felt
Black buttons (enough for eyes and a smile) Can use different sizes if you want
Scissors
Black thread and sewing needle
Sewing machine with orange thread
straight pins
fabric marker (optional)

Step 1: Lay your hat flat and begin arranging the buttons as eyes and a smile. Play around with the scale of the buttons seeing where you like larger vs. smaller ones and mix of sizes if you want. I sometimes like to offset the eyes on an angle a bit.

Step 2: Cut a triangle from the orange felt about 4 inches long (my base was just under 2 inches wide). Place it on the hat and see of the scale is to your liking. If not, trim a little on the sides you’d like shorter or not as wide.
 
Step 3: Pin the carrot nose into place. If you’d like, use a fabric marker to mark where the button placement was and move the buttons off. Using your sewing machine, attach the carrot nose to the hat.
 Step 4: With a hand sewing needle and black thread sew on the button eyes and smile. And you are DONE!
