I've fallen in love with these cute animal hats, So i've decided I'm going to make myself a panda. If you're not sure what I mean here's some examples:


(these pics were ripped off deviant art and right here on craftster, they're not mine!)

But how cute?!  Cheesy

Anyways, I've never made a hat before, so I thought it might be nice for a group of us to have a crack at it together?

Theres a couple of tutorials floating around:

and...

I've already ordered some off-white and black anti-pill fleece off ebay, but I don't think it'll be here untill end of next week. Oh well Smiley

If anyone is interested talk to me! The only animals I could think of doing apart from a panda were: a rabbit (these are cute with the long droopey ears), a cat, and well just some random characters really lol.

Anyone wanting to be more original than me and make a chicken or something is very very encouraged!!

Oh! These hats are fun! My niece and I made a bunch of these recently for a craft fair. They sold pretty well.  I wish I had gotten pics of the piggie and dinosaur ones!

Those are fantastic  Cheesy

Is making hats easy? Is it just a case of putting darts in the right place?

I love them both Smiley

I didn't use any darts.  I made them similarly to the first link you posted....except I used  4 panels instead of only 3. I sewed two sets of 2 panels together, then basted the ears onto one half of the hat, then sewed the other side on. easy! sometimes I make a brim, sometimes  I don't.

Is that a Kyo hat?! ^_^;;

I would love to do this, but I'm swamped with other things right now(Mom gives me a budget on fabric and such each month and I'm about to blow it on a costume and a pattern for school), but I'm going to bookmark this thread, just in case.

i'm looking to make a couple of hats like these myself but i'm hesitant to get started ^^;
i like the idea of using 4 panels...i just sort of wish i had more examples of them being made.  does anyone have any other patterns or tutorials at all?  i'm sure i could figure it out, i just don't have any "practice fabric" right now Tongue

If I can get my camera working, or borrow my nieces camera -I could post a step by step tute with pics if that would be helpful.

i've done a little tinkering with some newspaper to try to come up with something but it's...coming along slowly, lol ^^;
if you could just show the shape of the peices before they're put together, then that's probably all i'd need.
thanks so much for even offering Cheesy

I have some anti-pill fleece just lying around...although all in incredible bright colors.
I could give it a shot, though. ^.^
