The cowboy hat is a staple of model horse scenes and western scale models. These instructions for making a miniature felt cowboy hat can be used to tweak the style of the hats for period or contemporary scale scenes. These felt hats can be made in scales from 1:6 down to at least 1:24 scale which allows them to be used with dolls house dolls, fashion dolls, or for model horse scenes in several scales. The project requires the use of a steam iron, so children making these hats may need assistance or supervision.
