To make the hair:
You can cut out a template and pin it to black felt, cut it out. Put the point facing the front of the hat. With a sewing needle stitch it to the front and along the sides. Use the collar as your guide as you trim the felt. Sew the felt in place as you go and then sew the collar to conceal the felt.

Example of template below:
