Curious George Hat

I made this hat for my granddaughter’s Halloween costume. She is going to be ‘Dorge’ and though the patterns I found were really cute monkeys, they didn't really looked that much like a cartoon monkey. I took special care to keep George as much of a cartoon as possible, using black outlines, distinct shapes and simple embroidery. This hat is fun to make and will be loved by everyone!
