That is sooooo cute. I love cat in the hat. But dogs are more agreeable to wear silly hats!

Dear very talented lady. I'm oh so hoping you can help me. I'm needing a pattern...I'm oh so not talented...for a Green Bay Packers Cheesehead hat for my little 6lb Papillions. I'm thinking I just have to make a strip long enough to fold into a triangle and then make a flat triangle for the top and bottom and then had chains to go over there ears and under there chin. Does that sound right?

I do not have a pattern for a cheesehead, but it is on my list of ideas.
idea: Have you thought of using a Sponge, cut to the right shape and and hot gluing it to a dog beanie.
Thanks, Sara
