What a ton of work - and it looks lovely!  I'm sure you'll enjoy wearing this!  I like how the embroidery ties in with the red of the inner sleeves.  Nice work!
12  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Turtle Quilt on: May 21, 2012 10:57:00 AM
My son asked me to make him a quilt with a turtle on it.  I drew the turtle myself, and  appliqued it onto the center square by hand.  Then I spent four days from morning to night cutting and sewing strips around the 8-1/2 inch squares that were cut from a sea turtle-themed batik I ordered online from a quilt shop in Hawaii.

You could take a look at this tutorial:


The author includes a PDF of the hat pattern you can print out at home.  Step 10 describes how to wire and stuff the ears.

This pattern on Ebay might work for you:


It's McCalls 2038, which apparently doesn't exist anymore, at least I couldn't find it on the McCalls website.

19  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Keeping track of time? on: August 23, 2011 10:31:54 AM
I made a point once of keeping track of how long it took to make an item.  What I found out was that the more I made, the faster I got at it.  What used to take me three hours to make takes just one hour now!  I ended up pricing the item to take into consideration the longest amount of time it took, paying myself $10 per hour, plus three times the cost of my materials.  I did not lower my price just because I got better at making these things.  In fact, I eventually doubled my prices because the quality of the items improved as I got more experienced - and people were willing to pay more (so I gave myself a raise to about $20 an hour).  Anyway,  you need to make one thing straight through from start to finish without any interruptions to figure it out.  That's what I did.  Good luck!

I wonder whether stuffing them with lightweight polyfill might do the trick.
