Printout & Keep: Monster Beanie

It was Spirit Week at my sons preschool a few weeks ago, and each day had a theme where the kiddos could dress up special for each particular day. One day was called crazy hat day. Since we don't have an abundance of crazy hats laying around the house, I decided to make one and that's when the Monster Beanie was born!

This hat turned out so cute and we received so many compliments on it, that I decided to make a tutorial for all of you!

Plain Knit Beanie Cap - I stole one from my hubbies stash!
One Sheet each of white(I actually used glitter felt), green, red, blue, yellow, and black felt
Thread to match and a sewing needle
Fabric glue - I LOVE Aleene's Fabric Fusion
Monster Pattern Pieces, you can print them out by clicking the pic below...

What To Do:
Print out the Monster template and trace onto felt. Cut the felt pieces out and glue (or sew) them on the beanie as shown. I did this hat last minute, so I just used a some fabric glue to adhere the pieces, if I were to do this again, I would sew the pieces on! The green spikes on top of the beanie were hand sewed using a blanket stitch! Enjoy this tutorial and if you make this hat, please let me know, I would love to see it!!
