Here’s the song the Sorting Hat is singing in case you can’t read it on the photo.
Not to Gryffindor, Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff,
And Slytherin definitely will not do…
I’ll send you where dwell the best of the best,
I’ll put you in Ridgeview!
How did you make the hat and the stool? Is their a pattern for teacher that are not crafty
I don’t actually have a pattern for them, I just drew them. I’ll try to tell you how I did it. Sorry if I ramble or if it doesn’t make sense! (=
For the stool top, draw a long skinny rectangle and then round the edges. For the legs, you could place a ruler on your paper and then draw edges on either side, adding bumps, etc. wherever you wanted them. The ruler will just help you know they’re all a semi-consistent width.
For the hat: I used a large scrap I had of brown bulletin board paper. It would actually probably look better on brown construction paper (or even the inside of a grocery bag) but then it would be smaller. Roughly/lightly sketch a wide oval at the bottom (this will be the brim) and then lightly draw a floppy hat shape. If you google a sorting hat pic try to copy the basic overall shape. Then, the real key is putting in shadows and highlights. If you aren’t really familiar with this, just use a google image you like and copy the shadow/highlight shapes & placements. I used brown and white crayons to do this. You will likely end up changing your overall/rough hat stage during this process- so don’t cut it out until you’re done. (=
Hopefully this was a little bit helpful.
Have a fun day!
Actually, I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this before! Just zoom in on my hat and copy it – you can see all the shadow & highlight details drawn on it too so it might be easier. Not that mine is perfect by any means — but, it should be easier than trying to do it on your own. (=
