These cute little hats are a fun craft.  These miniature straw hats can be turned into a number of animals like this Mouse or a Cat or a Bear...  This make a great Refrigerator Magnet and a easy homemade gift.

      • While that is drying, cut out your ears from the Felt
      • You can paint any decoration you want on the ears, if desired
      • Tie your ribbon into a bow for the neck of your animal
