Oversized Golf Hat for Barbie or Ken -Free Pattern -St. Patrick's Day

This Over Sized Golf Hat for Barbie, Ken, or action figure dolls starts with a simple fabric yo-yo, add a felt brim, and the finishing touch, a pom-pom on top. Cute:@) This is one of those crafts that comes together in less than 30 minutes, especially after the first one, so you can make a couple in different fabrics and designs... I used a standard printed cotton fabric, found at Walmart, Dollar Tree, and craft stores. The hats would be cute for any holiday or occasion. I think we'll have to whip up a red, white, and blue one this summer...

Perfect for some silly St. Patrick's Day fun...

✂What I did:
  1. Start with a 5" circle of fabric. It doesn't need to be exact folks, we're just aiming for a floppy, oversized hat. I traced around a Corelle ice cream bowl.
  2. Fold the right side over approximately 1/4" and loosely sew all the way around the circle with double thread. I have a good picture tutorial about how to make a yo-yo here.
  3. Gently begin to snug up the thread to create a pouch, ~but~ unlike normal yo-yo's, keep the open center larger. This is what will fit over the doll's head. It's good to have a doll handy for fittings...
  4. Once you decide how large you'd like the opening tie a knot in the string.
  5. Shape the hat so the opening is in the center, smoosh the fabric creating a bit of a fold around the outer edge. (Picture below).
  6. Cut brim from felt, or any stiffer material, color of choice.
  7. Hot glue brim onto front of hat at opening of circle. (Same pic below.)
  8. Tip: You can add some batting or cotton ball to inside of hat, push towards outer edge to add a little fullness if it seems too flat.
  9. Glue pom-pom to top if desired-done!

Brim pattern:
From side to side approximately 1 1/4".
Want a bigger, floppier bill?
Simply cut it larger.

Now Ken is ready for the parade😎
