So I got this idea from another Craftster, not sure where the original post is though, feel free to post a link if you know...I just kind of made my own pattern, cutting out 11" circles of felt, and finding the circumference of the circle, and dividing by 12 to get the width of each slice of the peppermint, then I drew pie slices on my red felt, and then I used the pie slices as a guide to make the swirled shapes. I ended up using math I haven't used in years, but I wanted it to look perfect. Sewed the red swirls on, sewed both sides together, stuffed, sewed shut, and wrapped the whole thing in shiny tulle and tied knots on the sides, trimmed and done!

Love it! And I have everything but the tulle on hand.

I did a sun hat pattern, actually used pi to figure the size and shape of the hat band. I hear my 8th grade math teacher saying I told you so.
