My youngest boy turns one today and I wanted to make him a special birthday hat just for him to wear on his day.

I started looking around the web for a birthday hat and eventually found a perfect one from Mamachee. HERE you will find the crochet party hat pattern and step by step tutorial on how to reinforce it with cardboard paper.

On my hat, I added a chin strap and button. In one end, sew a button and on the other attach the yarn. Chain approx 55 (measure this on your child to get the correct length). Sc in 6th ch (this will created a buttonhole) and in each chain across, sl st again where you attach.
F/O and weave in the ends.

To make the Mickey Mouse appliqué...
I like to trace the images onto white paper to make templates. Then tape the template unto the felt that I will be using to cut out that perfect shape. You can google "mickey mouse applique" and you'll find several; as well for the numbers. Once you have cut out your appliqués from felt go ahead and glued them in place using hot glue.

Don't forget to check out my other Mickey Mouse items that I have available.
You can always easily turn any of them into Minnie Mouse. If you need any help at all in making Minnie, don't hesitate to contact me.
