I have planned for a while to make me a new hat, just like yours, and got very happy when I find your tut!
So today was the big day. I really like Pikachu, so it wasnt that difficult to choose the theme. (But I will make a cat hat someday too).
Its a good tut, but if you are like me, it doesnt help with a god tut, as I dont read everything, and miss some parts here and there.. Lol, but I think the hat turned out pretty good.
Anyway, I have here an action pic.
