In our case, we are cutting out the shapes for the Leprechaun Hat and the Shamrock leaf, both shapes very traditional to the St Patrick’s Day


Step 3  

In order to create a great finish on the edges of the felt hat, you can use a blanket stitch choosing the complementing green color embroidery thread.

Step 4 

In order to create a miniature belt for the hat, you will need a thin strip of black felt and a neatly-cut mini-rectangle cut from yellow felt.

Round the corners of the yellow rectangle and make two small straight cuts inside the rectangle. This way you can run the black strip through them, thus creating a belt with a buckle effect. 


Step 5  

Once the little black hat belt is ready to go, use the fabric glue to secure it in place.
