Cutting all the pieces out for a project can be one of the most difficult parts. Don't get discouraged and be patient with yourself! One of the fun things about a minion hat is that you can style it how you want. You could do one eye, more hair, a different mouth, etc!

Hat: You can download the pattern on the previous step to get the general hat shape. Just make sure it's around 11 1/2 inches along the bottom, and about 8 1/2 inches tall. Cut this part out in the yellow.

Brim: Cut out two blue 11 1/2 x 5 inch rectangles.

Band: This is out of black. Fold the yellow hat part up in half to get your length. Cut about 1 inch thick, on the fold so it's one long piece. (Fifth Picture)

Eyes: Find something round (diameter about 2 inches) to trace onto white fleece. It doesn't need to be pretty because the edges will be hidden under gray.

Goggles: Cut about half an inch larger than the white, all the way around. Then cut out the middle of the circle.

Eye Pupil: I used 1 inch circles of brown, with a smaller black circle inside.

Smile/Hair: Use black fleece scraps to make a smile and some pieces of hair.

Lay out your pieces to make sure you have everything.

Unfortunately I gave the hat to a friend for Christmas... She hasn't sent me a picture of her wearing it yet and I wanted to get it published for the contest. Maybe I'll make another (They are pretty fun!) and get some more pictures up :)

You really make me wanna make hats! And have a cat :)
