The felt piece is 18 inches wide and 4 feet long. It was the size I had so that is what I am using. The one I made up years ago is around 3 1/2 feet long and almost 2 feet across.
I folded the fabric in half and cut a large T so a child's head will fit in. I have a piece of paper under the fabric so you can see. The picture is upside down. The neck is at the bottom.
Cut away some of the T like this. Again a piece of paper is under top layer so you can see.
Cut some fringe.
using a bunch of pony beads that I already had and some denim thread and adding 5 beads on the needle at a time I went around the front.
Not perfect but DONE! My son is happy I hope my Nephew will be also. I will post my headband next.
I am going to look and see if I can find enough brown fabric to make ties for the sides. I might be able to dig up some string or something to tie the sides. If not I will add a snap to each side to help keep them in place on the boys.
