Hello there!! Thanks for stopping by!
My son turned 6 at the end of last month, and he was very adamant that he wanted a Mario and Sonic Party. We decided the theme would be Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. As one of the favors, I made hats for each of the kids.
|Thanks to my adorable models!! :)|
So anyway!! I started out by searching all the thrift stores in our area for red and blue hats. I was planning for 10-15 kids to be at the party, so I couldn't afford to pay $7 for a plain blue or red hat from Walmart. I ended up paying $3 for most of the hats at the thrift store, but some of them were only $1. The hats started out like this
First I cut a piece of white felt big enough to cover the stuff on the front of the hat
I glued the top of the felt onto the hat first, and then moved down. On most of the hats I had to trim some of the felt where it met the brim of the hat so it wouldn't bunch. Once that was done, I worked on cutting out the M's and Sonic's. The Sonic was a pain, and I still think it looks a little goofy, but the kids knew what it was and didn't seem to mind!
I'm not sure why I didn't draw in the eyes on Sonic for the pictures, but oh well. You get the general idea! All the kids loved their hats, and were so excited that they got to take them home.
What do you think?
Check back next week when I post about the actual Mario vs Sonic at the Olympic Games party! (wow, that's a mouthful!)
