Step 1: Materials
1 Camo T-shirt
1 Strip of fuzzy fabric
1 Jeans Pant Leg
Old Pillow stuffing - 1 wad
Needle & Thread
Step 2: Cutting
For the fuzz, I used a children's coat that had a fuzzy lining. After deconstructing it, cut 2 strips, sew them end to end, then fit it around your head plus 1 inch.
Lay out your camo shirt, and use a Santa hat to trace around. Make sure to leave 1/2 to 1" all the way around. (You can see my other tutorial for making Santa Hats from old shirts.) Cut out the shape.
T-shirt material is very flimsy, so use a pant leg to line the camo material. Trace and cut just like you did with the camo shirt.
Step 3: Pin & Sew
Place your camo print, right sides together, then sandwich them in between the two pieces of jean material. Pin together, and sew around the edge. Leave the bottom part open.
Turn the hat right-side out, and fold up the bottom about 1.5 inches. Sew around the fold to secure.
Place the fuzzy lining around the folded edge, then top-stitch all the way around the bottom part.
Repeat the top-stitch on the upper part of the fuzz.
Step 4: Finish
Grab a handful of stuffing; place it in a ball, and hand-sew to the top of the hat. Add bells and beads if desired.
