robin hood in lincoln green felt

i was so excited for our sewing lesson this week. robin hood hats!!
what makes this extra exciting for my students is that they have all been reading and studying robin hood in their regular classrooms this past month.

i don't know about the rest of the kids, but my girls have been having their fair share of bow and arrow shooting and sword fights at home. the hat will make a perfect accessory.

i found a simple tutorial here.
i scaled down the measurements to a 20" diameter, and 10" radius.
once their pattern was cut, all they had to do was a simple whip stitch on one seam, a tack on either side of the hat to hold up the flaps.
insert a feather.

i loved watching them all leave the classroom with their lincoln green caps on.
ready to battle prince john.
robbing the rich.
stuff like that.
