This hat was inspired by the Disney "Cars" movie character,"Lightning McQueen." I made the original version as a Christmas gift for my then three-year-old son, and he LOVED it. He was a huge "Cars" fan at the time and still is... only now "Thomas the Train" has proven to be a close contender. Kids and their phases!
This hat requires a great deal of applique piecework and embroidery. McQueen's eyes are appliqued in the front with the "Rusteez" logo embroidered below. Lightning bolts are appliqued on each side with McQueen's race car number, 95, appliqued atop them. Then on the top of the hat, McQueen's race car number is appliqued. Also on the top of the ear flaps are appliqued race car wheels with red centers just like at the end of the original "Cars" movie.
This hat rendition of McQueen would please the biggest of little fans. If you would like one made for your own fanatic, please feel free to visit my Etsy shop.
