Make a Mario hat!
One of my son's friends was having a birthday. According to my kiddo, his friend has apparently been pining for a Mario hat for years. A quick trip to the craft store and about 15 minutes, and his pining days are over! It was a big hit and "just what he wanted!"

I think if I did this again, I would cut out my own "M" to make it look a bit more authentic.

  • Step 1

    Using a cup or similar for your template, trace a circle on the scrap of white felt.

  • Step 2

    Center the embroidered "M" on the white circle.

    (Optional - instead of an embroidered letter, cut your "M" out of red felt, then follow step three)

  • Step 3

    Slowly and carefully stitch around the "M."

    *note* the "M" I used was an iron on, but I did NOT iron it - acrylic felt will melt and stick all over your iron ...ew!

  • Step 4

    Center the circle on the front of the hat, pinning carefully all the way around, turning out the inside facing if necessary.

    Step 5

    Carefully stitch all the way around the circle. Mine was machine stitched, but you could hand stitch, too.
