Want to wear a hat that blocks the sun while showing off a set of pussycat ears? Fleece and knit hats with ears are adorable, but they can get too warm on a sunny day. Here are simple instructions for adding cat ears to a baseball cap tp make a practical head covering that still makes a statement.

Step 1: What You'll Need


  • 1 Plain six-panel baseball hat, structured or unstructured. I used this one
  • Medium weight fabric that matches the hat for the outer ears
  • Pink (or another contrasting color) felt for the inner ears
  • Thread
  • Wire (I used milliners wire) or pipe cleaners
  • Pattern for the ears (see PDF attached to this step)


  • Sewing machine (can also be hand sewn)
  • Seam ripper
  • Wire cutters
  • Pliers
  • Fabric scissors
  • Pins
