• Very small straw hats
  • Yellow wool
  • Small piece white cotton
  • Plaid material
  • Pin backing
  • Glue
  • Jute
  • Small flower for hat
  • A couple cotton balls

Start by cutting two pieces of plaid fabric approximately 6 inches by 3 inches then fold them into a 6 inch by 1 inch length piece and ironing in place. Tie the two pieces together with jute in center like an “x”. Then tie the ends of each with a tiny bit of fabric to form legs and arms. Then take white cotton and cut a small circle for head then stuff with cotton balls and tie with jute to the upper part of body. It’s a good idea to glue to make it more secure. Using yellow wool form a tuff of hair and glue to top of head then glue on straw hat. Add a fall colored flower to top of hat for an added touch. Finally, glue pin backing to back of body. (I slipped mine under the waist tie and glued it in place to add a bit more stability).
