I made this for my swap partner and now that she has recieved I thought everyone else might like to have a look at it, as there appears to be a large Hello Kitty congregation here.  A couple of pics, I don't have an in action pic but there is onehere which shows it a bit better





Hope this makes sense if not let me know
You will need

White fleecy or Polar fleece fabric (note : fluffy side of fabric is the right side)- cut out a large circle - I used a dinner plate for this.  You will also need two 4 inch squares, and a strip 4 inchs wide and long enough to go around your head circumference.

Hello Kitty of other fabric - You will need a large circle of this fabric (again the dinner plate) but you will need to cut the centre out, this circle needs to be the same measurement as the circumference of your head. (I used a smaller bread and butter plate here)



fold sqares of fabric in half, with fluffy side out, to form a rectangle then fold top corners to bottom centre to form a triangle, tack pin or sew along bottom edge to hold.
 


Place these on the large white circle points facing inwards and open front fold facing downwards on to circle. Place one at eleven o'clock and the other at one o'clockand sew, tack or pin to secure.  Next place patterned fabric right side down on top of white circle and ears, pin and sew around entire circle.  Take it slow over the ears as this area is fairly chunky with fabric. Turn right side out. Now is a good time to do the face, cut three oval shapes from black felt/fabric, one oval just a bit smaller than the black ones in yellow felt/fabric.  Glue the yellow oval onto one of the black ones, this is the nose and needs to be placed just below centre of the white circle, the two eyes need to be placed on centre to either side of nose. Red bow under right ear. Whiskers are sewn on with black wool.



Take long strip of white fabric and sew the short ends together fluffy sides facing.  Fold in half with fluffy side out and attach with pins  and sew this to the inside circle of the patterned fabric. Your beret is now complete.

That is super cool! I wish I had been your swap partner, or had the skills to sew something round. My current obsession are hello kitty ziplock bags.
