I hope this helps you. I am being a sexy/evil/Elle Driver-type nurse for Halloween. If you are interested, at Walmart they have blood filled IV bagss. I think they are a wonderful addition, depending what kind of nurse you are being.  Grin

Even though this particular set of instructions is talking about making the nurses cap out of fabric (and it's for a doll), you could also do it on the cheap with a a large piece of heavy white paper and just draw on your embellishments rather than embroidering...depends on how much effort/money you want to put in!

How To Make an AG sized Nurse Hat

Remember when we were children and you made paper hats... Lets fold a nurse hat with material and have pins to hold it in place after it is folded....Do this with paper first and then you will have the right size....
1.Take a rectangle piece of matereial and have it starched.......fold down the short side leaving 1 and half inches at the bottom ...press....
2. Find the middle of the folded edge, place a pin there......fold AT pin, so fold edge,. to right is going north and south... and Press.
3.Now fold the folded edge to left of pin so the folded edge is going north and south...press.
4.You now have a triangle, top and 1 1/2 inch bottom, fold this 1 1/2 inch section up to the outside ( band across the front of hat) Press.
5. Fold down POINT of hat to back.....Press.... tack point down with button... top of hat is flat now...
6. Back of hat , you take the raw edges and turn them under and blind stitch. this makes a nurse cap.... you will have to play with paper size to find the right size...for your doll.....
7. Emb. a red cross on cap ....
