Baby Doll Party Hat Tutorial

*You may need to adjust measurements for your particular Baby Doll, but I included the measurements I used for our dolls as a starting point.

1. Cut out a semi circle of Stiff Felt- Mine was 9 inches long on the straight side and about 4 1/2 inches at the widest part of the semi circle. (If you had a protractor you could make a super nice circle with a 4 1/2 inch radius and then just cut it in half.)
2. Cover with Fabric. I used wonder under and ironed mine on- you could just wrap around and sew or glue it on, whatever.
3. Sew on ric rac if you like. Sew on some elastic for the chin strap. My chin strap for Bitty Baby was 8 inches long and about 7 inches for the Dora/Diego Dolls. But it stretches so there's some wiggle room.
4.Roll into a cone. Sew shut by hand.
5. Add a little flower or pom pom on top.
