I made Super Mario hats for my nephews a little while back.
I couldn’t find a pattern anywhere so, after much trial and error, this is what I came up with.
You can download the pattern here.
This pattern works for 4/5 year olds but can be adapted for older children/adults.
Cut 2 of each hat and visor piece (I used red fleece fabric – it was sturdy and soft at the same time and worked well to give the bulky, cartoony look of Mario’s hat)
Sew with right sides together
Cut the “M” out of white felt and stitch to front piece of hat
Sew visor pieces together (right sides together)
Turn right side out and insert piece of plastic or interfacing to add rigidity to the visor (on the pattern the dotted line marks the size of the piece of plastic or interfacing to be used – slightly smaller than the fabric pieces)
Pin visor to the hat
Sew visor to the hat
With right sides together sew hat pieces together all the way around the hat
Turn right side out and Insert polyfill to the front of the hat, on the inside (secure using hot glue)
Close the hat
Little J was not impressed – “This is for boys!”
